21 year-old Spanish pianist Maria Linares, is in her final year of undergraduate study with Professor Pascal Nemirovski at RBC. Winner of more than twenty recognised national and international competitions from her home country, she has also received first prize in the Dennis Matthews Prize, the Winifred Micklam Music Prize and the Renna Kellaway Piano Prize at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.

Maria graduated with the highest honours in 2019 and received the highest accolades from her hometown council. Furthermore, she has performed in many concert halls in Europe, in addition to being lauded as one of the young ambassadors of the Lang Lang International Music Foundation. At the age of 15, she made her debut with orchestra as a soloist and has performed concertos for consecutive seasons at the Palau de la Musica in Valencia and at the Ciudad de Leon Concert Hall. She has received masterclasses from artists such as Paul Badura-Skoda and Cyprien Katsaris.

Emily Plumb is a saxophonist currently in her final year of her undergraduate degree at RBC, studying under Naomi Sullivan. Since arriving in Birmingham from an upbringing of state school musical education in Greater Manchester, Emily has seen success as a finalist of the RBC Saxophone Prize 2022 and also as a member of the multi-award winning Yugen Saxophone Quartet. Alongside her passion for chamber music, Emily enjoys being part of orchestral projects. Emily has performed with the RBC Symphony Orchestra as well as the Symphony Orchestra at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where she studied for a term under Christer Johnsson through the Erasmus scheme. Emily hopes to return to Stockholm in the future. Emily enjoys playing a wide variety of genres; as well as the standard classical saxophone repertoire, she also enjoys finding and performing works by modern, lesser-known composers, some of which she often includes in her recitals.
