As part of the Steyning Festival 2007, Steyning Music Society is delighted to be presenting exciting young pianist Ben Powell in a short coffee time concert at the Steyning Centre.

Ben studied with Anne Sheridan and Adrian West before entering the Royal Northern College of Music in 1999, where he studied with Carole Presland.  Thanks to a DAAD scholarship Benjamin spent a year at the Hochshule für Musik in Cologne, in the class of Pierre-Laurent Aimard. Funding from the Musicians Benevolent Fund and the Lynn Foundation allowed Ben to return to the RNCM to study with Alexander Melnikov.

Ben has been awarded various prizes, including the Harriet Cohen Memorial Music Award, Gordon Greene Award, the Hilda Deane Anderson Award, the Granada Prize for chamber music, the Anne Cantelo Scholarship and the RJ Forbes Award for accompaniment. During the last six years he has performed across the UK and in Holland and Germany. In February 2004 he performed Britten's Piano Concerto with the RNCM Chamber Orchestra under Douglas Boyd.

For his recent performance of Grieg's Piano Concerto with the High Peak Orchestra, Ben was awarded best musical performance in the Buxton Festival Fringe.

As a chamber musician Ben has performed frequently throughout the UK, and at the chamber music festivals at the RNCM. For five years he was a member of the Roques piano trio. He is also particularly interested by contemporary music and was awarded, with Jody Killingsworth and Brian Walters, the Granada Prize for a performance of Ligeti’s Horn Trio.
