British pianist Maria Marchant gave her Wigmore Hall and Southbank debuts in 2010 to critical acclaim after being selected as a young artist on the Concordia Foundation, Park Lane Group and Tillett Trust schemes. Since then, she has been much in demand as recitalist and has performed in numerous festivals and is pianist-in-residence at the Shipley Arts Festival, where she has also performed with the Stradivarius Trio.
Maria was awarded First Prize and Gold Medal in the International Hindemith Competition in 2008 whilst studying for her MMus in Advanced Piano Performance at the Royal College of Music as one of four recipients of the BBC Performing Arts Fund Education Bursary. She was also awarded the RCM Hilda Anderson Deane Scholarship and was selected as one of RCM’s ‘Rising Stars’. Maria’s awards at Trinity Laban Conservatoire where she gained a First Class Honours BMus include the Silver Medal for Piano Performance, Eric Falk Trust (Concerto Playing), John Halford (Contemporary Music), John Ireland, Alfred Kitchin (Chopin) and the John Longmire (Beethoven). She has studied with many professors including Alexander Ardakov, Philip Colman, Niel Immelman and Yonty Solomon.
