There is a chance to catch some of the bright stars of Trinity College of Music and Drama as six of their most outstanding graduates from 2016 compete for the college Gold Medal. At Kings Place on Monday 23 January 2017, there will be a chance to hear Rob Griffin jazz saxophone, Jon Frank French horn, Urška Horvat cello, James Newby baritone, Benjamin Pearson composer, and Ettore Strangio piano in the Gold Medal showcase, with percussionist Colin Currie being among the judges.

Baritone James Newby has already won the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award (being the youngest winner ever) and performed at the Last Night of the Proms as one of the 16 soloists in RVW's Serenade to Music. Composer Benjamin Pearson has scored a number of short films, as well as working on dance pieces with Transitions Dance Company, and with Esme Callaghan and the Central School of Ballet.
