Sussed Choir To Sing @ Final Of The 2022 Sussex Young Musician Of The Year Competition

Coro Nuovo, one of Sussex's most accomplished choirs, will feature in a special concert to mark the Final of the 2022 Sussex Young Musician of the Year Competition. 

After the three finalists have performed for the audience, a winner will be selected by this year's adjudicator, the celebrated Grammy nominated conductor David Lawrence.

Davis Lawrence has conducted the London Philharmonic choir and holds the Guinness World Record for conducting the UK's largest choir.

As a not-for-profit choir, Coro Nuovo founded the Sussex Young Musician of the Year Awards in 2016 to support Sussex's most talented young musicians aged 18-26 as they embark upon a professional career in music. 

The 2022 competition winner will receive a £1000 bursary to help towards the costs of their musical development.

Catherine Kent, Managing Chair of Coro Nuovo. said:

"Coro Nuovo is delighted to have received a Platinum Jubilee Community Grant from the Mid Sussex District Council, and to be performing the only official Jubilee concert in the area. 

"We've put together a fantastic programme, and we're looking forward to sharing our passion for British choral music with our audience."

This year's finalists are:

Zoe Barnett, 23, from Chichester. Zoe learnt to play classical guitar from her mother and has just made her Wigmore Hall debut.  She is currently studying at the Royal College of Music.

Laura Coppinger, 26, from Cuckfield and Storrington. Laura is a soprano specialising in classical and operatic recitals. She is studying towards a postgraduate degree at the Royal Scottish Conservatoire.

Laurence Cuttriss, 24, from Burgess Hill.  Laurence has been playing the clarinet from a very young age. He frequently performs at concerts and recitals across Sussex and has recently graduated from Trinity Laban. 

The concert is taking place at 7:00pm on Saturday 16th July at St Andrews Church in Burgess Hill, Sussex.

The event is open to the public, with advance tickets costing £15, or £17.50 on the door. The concert is listed on the UK Government"s Platinum Jubilee website and is the only official Jubilee concert in the Mid Sussex area.
