LOOKING FORWARD TO 2022

Our 2021 online Festival was a great success with many outstanding performances. We will build on this success in 2022 with our return to mostly live competitions.

Music classes will be in the Free Church Hampstead Garden Suburb from Monday 14 March to Friday 1 April and from Friday 22 April to Saturday 14 May.

Harp classes will be in North Bank House, Muswell Hill on Sunday 1 and Monday 2 May

Speech and Drama will be in King Alfred Phoenix Theatre on Sunday 8 May

Choir competitions will continue to be online and will be held on Wednesday 4 May


We have a new chairman

Allan Clay is a pianist, organist, conductor and composer, with long experience in education and as an adjudicator. He was educated in Essex and went on to the Royal Academy of Music, London, studying piano with Alexander Kelly, organ with Christopher Bowers-Broadbent and composition with Roger Steptoe. After graduating, he worked as a freelance musician and was the founding conductor of the Surrey Sinfonietta (now the London Camerata) who gave the first performance of his Oboe Concerto with Hilary Dennis. In the mid-90s, Allan joined the staff of Felsted School, and subsequently has been Director of Music in schools in the South of England, as well as at Harrow School, Bangkok, where also he worked with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra, Zambia and Vietnam. He examines extensively for ABRSM, both in the UK and internationally.

 

 

 

 


 

We have started planning for the 2022 Festival and will include details on this website when they are available.

Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition – we will not be running this competition in 2022

As, during 2021, few music festivals have been able to take place, we have decided not to run the Emanuel Trophy Piano Competition in 2022. Any pianists who would normally be nominated for the 2022 competition will instead be eligible to be nominated for the 2023 competition. If you are the secretary of a festival that usually nominates entrants for the Emanuel Competition and have any questions, please contact Janice Twiselton – admin@northlondonfestival.org.uk.
