Trinity Laban alumnus Giulio Potenza has won second prize in the Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition 2016.
Giulio, who studied at Trinity Laban with Gabriele Baldocci from 2012-2015, has performed at countless prestigious venues and events across Europe. He was winner of Trinity Laban’s Hannah Brooke Prize for Piano, and has previously been Highly Commended for the Jaques Samuel Pianos Intercollegiate Piano Competition.
The Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition, based in New York, calls for entries the world over in five experience categories.
Giulio commented: ‘Knowing how many people from all over the world apply for this competition, I had little expectation. To learn I had won second prize was amazing!’
