Find out a bit more about our winners:

Matthew Campbell
My name is Matthew Campbell and I am a 16-year-old year 11 student at High Storrs. My primary instrument is cello on which I am working towards Grade 8, and I also play both violin and piano. I have loved composing since first picking up the cello at age 8. Since enrolling at the Sheffield Music Academy I now enjoy working on my music and improving my creative and musical skills. This is the first competition I’ve entered, and despite never having written for a piano trio, I was keen to try and will certainly continue to do so.

Liberty Richardson

Liberty Richardson is a seventeen-year-old composer and musician living in North Sheffield who plays Piano, Flute and Harp. She is an active member of Sheffield Youth Orchestra and is in the chorus of Grenoside and Birley Carr Players where she performs Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. This summer Liberty was selected to take part in Yorkshire Young Sinfonia, the world’s first fully digital youth orchestra, which culminated in a public performance in Leeds Town Hall alongside solo violinist Esther Abrami.

We can't wait to hear these fabulous new works performed by the distinguished Lawson Trio in Firth Hall on Sunday 10th March at 17.45. This event is free and open to all - more HERE.
