S​​ince having won The Irish Heritage Music Award, following a lauded performance at London’s Wigmore Hall, Adam Heron has established himself as one of today’s leading young pianists. He appeared on BBC Four Television as a Keyboard Category Finalist in BBC Young Musician 2018, which was recorded in The Bradshaw Hall, at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Subsequently he was invited to return to the BBC for a live performance on Radio 3 In Tune,​ in addition to receiving a recording contract from the Spanish record label, KNS Classical.

A​​dam Heron frequently performs as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician both in the UK and abroad. Overseas engagements include a concert at the Residence of the British​ ​Ambassador​ ​in​ ​Kiev,​ ​Ukraine,​ ​a recital tour of his native Hong​ ​Kong​ ​with​ ​the​ ​acclaimed​ cellist​ ​Jamie Walton, and further concerts in Ireland, Spain, France, and Morocco.

Within the UK, he has performed​ ​at​ ​venues including the Royal Albert Hall, and has given recitals at many high-profile music festivals, such as The Ryedale Festival, The Cheltenham Music Festival, and The Carducci Festival. He was invited to return to The Cheltenham Music Festival in 2017 for a concerto performance with the renowned Chineke! Orchestra, which was founded by Chi-chi Nwanoku OBE. Further concerto collaborations include performances alongside David Curtis, Glyn Oxley, and the American conductor Jonathon Heyward.

Christopher Quaid is a Masters graduate of the Royal College of Music, London.


Rebecca McNaught is a dynamic young British cellist who has performed internationally as a soloist and orchestral musician. 

She has a particular affinity to Elgar’s Cello Concerto, which she has performed across the UK at Merton College’s Passiontide Festival, St. John Smith’s Square, Gloucester Cathedral and in Tewkesbury Abbey. She is excited to embark on a Professional Diploma at the Royal Academy of Music next year where she will be exploring post-romantic solo and duo sonatas by composers such as Britten, Debussy, Crumb and Kodaly under the tutelage of Hannah Roberts. Upcoming performances of this repertoire include at the Two Moors Festival, Knighton and District Concert Series, and in Guildford Cathedral in the autumn.
