One of the UK's most exciting violinists, Sophie Rosa was awarded the Second Prize and Audience Prize at the 2nd Manchester International Violin Competition 2011. She has performed across the UK as a recitalist in venues including the Royal Festival Hall, the Purcell Room and Bridgewater Hall as well as appearing with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the Manchester Camerata. Sophie has broadcast for BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM.
Praised by Philip Mead, founder of the British Contemporary Piano Competition as "a consummate musician with a transcendent pianistic technique in the service of a refined musicality", Benjamin Powell has gained a reputation for intelligent and expressive performances with a strong commitment to contemporary music.

Since winning the British Contemporary Piano Competition in 2010 Benjamin has performed across the UK and Europe, in venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Bridgewater Hall, Wigmore Hall, Snape Maltings, IRCAM, and Harpa (Reykjavik). He has recently been appointed pianist for the Manchester-based Psappha Ensemble.
