AYM Alumni concert

AYM Spring Alumni Concert


We’re delighted to invite you to an online concert, hosted on YouTube, on Wednesday 21 April 2021.  This concert will celebrate the many successes of our Alumni, and will be hosted by Mahaliah Edwards and Caius Lee, both Alumni Trustees of AYM.  We have an exciting programme lined up featuring performances from AYM Alumni.

Violinist Mathilde Milwidsky, whose violin lessons were supported by AYM for eight years, will soon release her third album. We’re delighted that she’ll be giving a special performance for AYM.

Cellist Willard Carter is a more recent Alumnus, AYM having supported him for eight years with tuition fees and instruments costs. Willard is currently studying at the Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia, Madrid from where he’ll be performing.

Violinist Elodie Chousmer-Howelles is also a more recent Alumna whose violin tuition was supported by AYM for three years. Elodie is currently a scholar at the Royal Academy of Music where she studies with Sasha Sitkovetsky.

We’re also excited to welcome cellist Zara Hudson-Kozdoj who will join Mahaliah in conversation. They’ll discuss their own musical journeys, the difference AYM made to their music making, studying music at conservatories and navigating the Western Classical music world as young black women.

Date: Wednesday 21 April 2021

Timings: The event will start at 7:00 pm and will finish by 7:45 pm.

Watch again: our autumn online concert

In November 2020, we hosted our first online concert. Hosted by AYM Patron Zeb Soanes, the concert features performances by eight exceptional young musicians from our Awards programme. Our Alumna and Patron Jess Gillam also joined us to speak about her musical journey and interview a parent about her cellist son.. If you missed it, you can watch it again below.
