Benjamin Grosvenor – performing at University Hall this January

The second concert of our 2021/22 season, Benjamin Grosvenor follows The King’s Singers, and precedes Chineke! Chamber Ensemble who play University Hall in May. He'll join us on Wednesday 26 January 2022 at 7 pm for an hour-long performance.

Benjamin first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, and was invited to perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the First Night of the 2011 BBC Proms aged just nineteen.

A pianist of widespread international acclaim, he was announced Artist-in-Residence at Radio France for the 2020-21 season, and holds the same title also with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. In 2016, he became the inaugural recipient of The Ronnie and Lawrence Ackman Classical Piano Prize with the New York Philharmonic.

During his sensational career to date, Benjamin has received Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year and Instrumental Awards, a Classic Brits Critics’ Award, UK Critics’ Circle Award for Exceptional Young Talent and a Diapason d’Or Jeune Talent Award.
