Pianist Victor Lim has been chosen to undertake the RNCM’s International Artist Diploma.
This prestigious one-year qualification is for artists on the cusp of international careers.
Commencing in September, Victor – who was recently appointed Head of Keyboard at Rossall School – will benefit from intensive tuition and specialist classes, and receive advanced musical training to the highest level in performance, honing his artistic, technical, presentation and communication skills. He will also expand his recital, concerto and operatic repertory and benefit from exciting opportunities both at the College and externally.
David Horne, Head of Graduate School said: ‘Victor is an outstanding artist with admirably wide repertoire interests both in solo and chamber music, forming a number of successful artistic collaborative partnerships. He is also passionate in engaging with music-making in the community and works with the Olympias Music Foundation in Manchester. We are delighted to have Victor on the International Artist Programme and will look forward to him joining us in the 22-23 academic year.’
An RNCM alumnus and Gold Medal winner, Victor graduated last year with a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Studies and was recently chosen as a City Music Foundation Artist. He gave his first public appearance during the 2012 BBC Young Musicians of the Year competition. Since then he’s performed internationally as a soloist and collaborative pianist in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Norway, Denmark, Romania, China, Singapore and South Korea.
