OSO Soloist: Dominika Mak
Dominika Mak (LRSM), Saddleworth Young Musician of 2018, is an alumna of Chetham’s school of music, currently on a gap year as a scholar at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with Prof. Pascal Nemirovski. As a pianist, Dominika accepts any challenge. She does not shy away from difficult repertoire- currently competing in various festivals with Berg Sonata, Beethoven’s Waldstein, Ravel’s G major concerto, John Ireland’s Sonata (winner of the John Ireland prize) etc. She has participated in masterclasses with Julian Jacobson, Stephen Hough, Katya Apekisheva and Simon Callaghan among others. She is recognised for her involvement in accompanying singers, recently winning the Delia Hall accompaniment prize with a programme of Schubert songs and Vaughan Williams. She looks forward to a busy year with recitals of Debussy’s chanson, English song and Romantic German Lieder. Dominika also enjoys chamber music, recently taking on a project to learn and perform Schubert’s hour-long E flat piano trio at the Alexandra theatre Birmingham, to an enthusiastic audience. One of Dominika’s hobbies is singing in choirs, and she enjoys performing with Birmingham Chamber Choir with conductors such as Paul Spicer, Jeffrey Skidmore, and John Rutter. She hopes to read Music and be a choral and chamber music scholar at Trinity College, Cambridge.
