Toby White

Toby White received an HMUK Postgraduate Bursary in 2016 to support his first year of study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and was re-nominated by the college this year.

2016 was a year full of fantastic opportunities and memorable events for Toby, after which he is delighted that he is able to return to the Guildhall to continue his studies with the support of the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust.

Highlights this past academic year have included two wonderful chamber concerts in November. The first, performing Schumann’s 1st piano trio and Elgar’s piano quintet with Donald and Vivian Weilerstein at the Guildhall. The second was a performance of Bach’s The Musical Offering with Levon Chilingirian and members of the Chilingirian quartet among others, at King’s Place.

In March 2017 he had the great opportunity to perform Shostakovich’s 1st cello concerto in his home town, Ripon, North Yorkshire, with the St Cecilia Orchestra. This was such a valuable experience as solo performing is something he wishes to pursue during his career. He participated in the Youth Classics masterclass course in Switzerland in July and performed a recital of Debussy and Strauss in Purley on the 9th of August.
