Afternoon Tea & Recital with 'The Nexus Duo'
A Goosfest favourite, this year’s afternoon tea and recital features another talented duo performing in the beautiful setting of the Yellow Broom Restaurant. Both performers are students at the Royal Northern College of Music and hail from Scotland.
Andrew Birse studies violin with Gina McCormack and James Clark. Passionate about chamber music, Andrew has performed with ensembles including the Rowan Quartet and the Scottish Ensemble. As Principal Second Violin with the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland, he has played in the Edinburgh Festival and the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall.
Chloe Randall is in her third year at the College. Born into a family of musicians, she started playing cello at the age of 8. She trained at the Junior Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and since then has studied with various teachers including Betsy Taylor, Peter Dixon and Petr Prause. She was this year’s recipient of the Shirley Cattarall Award for Cello and last year was awarded the Amy Lindley cello prize at the RNCM. Since 2013, she has performed every year in the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Festival. In 2018 she attended the Festival Pablo Casals where she studied with Niklas Schmidt. She has participated in masterclasses with the cellists, Leonard Elschenbroich and Alice Neary.
