Two RCM Students Win at The TSO National Piano Competition

Alexander Seredenko and Samuel Deason, two students of The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School, won prizes at The Toronto Symphony Orchestra National Piano Competition, held at The Royal Conservatory between May 22 and 24, 2009. This prestigious piano competition is a biennial event and attracts Canada's finest young pianists between the ages of 16 and 25. Created to foster young talent, the competition has been a project of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra Volunteer Committee for over 20 years. Previous winners include acclaimed virtuoso Stewart Goodyear and rising star Todd Yaniw, both of whom are alumni of The Royal Conservatory.

Alexander Seredenko, currently pursuing his performance diploma in piano at The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School in Toronto, under the instruction of Dean James Anagnoson, won The Roy Thomson Hall First Prize of $8,000 and a future performance with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. No stranger to competitions, Alexander received first place at the annual Canadian National Competition in 1998, 1999 and 2000. Following these awards, and many local competitions in and around Ontario, he obtained first standing in several international piano competitions, including most recently the 2008 Hamamatsu Piano Academy Competition. On February 20, 2009, he appeared in concert with the Royal Conservatory Orchestra under TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian, in a progamme of Ravel, Tchaikovsky, and Elgar.

Samuel Deason, a piano student of Marc Durand, also at The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School, won The Victor Feldbrill Prize of $500 for best performance of a Canadian work. Most recently, Samuel also won the $500 Mary Winston Smail Piano award as well as a $3,500 scholarship to the Madeline Island Music Camp at the 53rd annual WAMSO (Minnesota Orchestra Volunteer Association) Young Artist Competition.

The Glenn Gould School of The Royal Conservatory is an internationally recognized centre for professional training in music performance and pedagogy at the post-secondary and post-bachelor levels. The School provides an intimate training environment with a curriculum designed to prepare the most gifted young musicians for all aspects of a professional career. An enrolment of 130 students keeps classes small, students receive more private lesson time, and are offered more than 150 master classes, in addition to between 80 and 100 performance opportunities throughout the year. The faculty consists of world-renowned performers, teachers, and scholars, each bringing expertise and knowledge of the highest standards to Glenn Gould students. Famous alumni include Isabel Bayrakdarian, Naida Cole, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. The Glenn Gould School has been designated a National Training Institute by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
