Rosanna Ter-Berg graduated in 2011 from Trinity Laban, with Distinction in her Masters in Performance degree. Studying with Anna Noakes, Rosanna won a number of awards including First Prize in The ESO Young Soloist Competition, The Harold Clarke Competition and Top Prize at the British Flute Society’s Young Artist Competition. She won the Kenneth Loveland Gift and was awarded The Friends in New York of TCM London Award and The Edgar TP Comley Prize for Excellence.
Rosanna has been selected as a Park Lane Group Artist and a Concordia Foundation Young Artist. She has performed as a soloist with the Eastbourne Symphony Orchestra, Leeds University Orchestra and The Orchestra of Situation Opera. She has played recitals at venues such as The Reform Club, The Royal Festival Hall, St Johns, Smith Square and St James’s Piccadilly.
Leo Nicholson was born in London but grew up in Staffordshire and Sheffield. He studied at the Purcell School of Music with Ilana Davids, and at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music with Jonathan Middleton, where he won the Ida Carroll Prize for Merit. He won a scholarship to Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance where he studied first with Yonty Solomon, then with Eugene Asti and subsequently with Douglas Finch. He won the John Longmire Beethoven and Alfred Kitchen Chopin competitions; in the recital he gave for his final examination, he gained the highest mark ever awarded to a student in the Keyboard Faculty.
An accomplished chamber musician, Leo is a much sought-after accompanist. He was a finalist with the soprano Charmian Bedford in the Lilian Ash French Song and Elisabeth Schumann Lieder competitions, and received a Musicians’ Benevolent Fund Development Award for his performances when she competed for the Maggie Teyte Prize and Miriam Licette Scholarship.
