St George's Chamber Orchestra's String Quartet is joined by the Russian, Beckenham resident pianist Arina Lazgiian.

Arina Lazgiian was born in Krasnoyarsk, Russia in 1991. She is currently studying at the Royal College of Music in London for an Artist Diploma with Professor Vanessa Latarche. Arina has already been awarded her Master`s degree from the Royal College of Music where she was supported by a Future of Russia Scholarship. Since arriving at the Royal College of Music, she has won the RCM Concerto Competition 2017 performing Saint-Saëns’ Concerto No. 2 twice with the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra. Arina also won the Hopkinson Gold Medal for piano in 2017. She was a finalist in the Jaques Samuel Intercollegiate Piano Competition at Wigmore Hall in 2017. In June 2018 Arina Lazgiian was announced as the recipient of the Benjamin Britten Piano Fellowship for 2018/19, awarded by the Royal College of Music. This Fellowship, named after the renowned composer and RCM alumnus, supports an exceptional pianist who has been accepted to the RCM Artist Diploma Course. The same year, Arina was selected to go through to the final stages of The Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition for the summer of 2019 in Bolzano, Italy. In December 2018, Arina was invited by the Royal College of Music to perform at a large fundraising VIP event, the Soirée d’Or, which took place at the Victoria and Albert museum in the Raphael Gallery.

Between 2010 and 2015, Arina was enrolled at the Moscow Conservatory where she studied under the renowned pianist Professor Vera Gornostayeva. Before this, she studied with Yelena Plyashkevich at the Moscow Gnessin Special Music School between 2005 and 2010. In 2005 Arina was granted an honorary award from the mayor of St Petersburg. She has performed at the Grand Hall of St Petersburg’s Philharmonic Society, the Academic Capella and the Small Hall Glazunov in St Petersbur, the Salle Cortot and the Centre Spirituel et Culturel Russe in Paris.

St George’s Chamber Orchestra was founded in 2004 as the professional orchestra for the South East in order to give local music lovers the opportunity to hear orchestral concerts of the highest standard on their own doorstep, and indeed for the musicians to enjoy making music together on their own doorstep!

The orchestra is drawn from an extraordinarily talented, experienced and versatile pool of musicians, a large number of whom are past winners of prestigious awards and musical competitions in the UK and elsewhere. Many either are or have been members of the leading London orchestras and a significant number are principals in those orchestras. Many others are members of Britain’s best known chamber ensembles.

We are proud to be resident at St George’s Church, Beckenham which has a long, strong and respected musical heritage, and boasts one of the finest church choirs in the UK. With its spaciousness, good acoustics and warm friendly atmosphere the church is an ideal venue for a chamber orchestra.

A few comments from our audience:

'St George's Chamber Orchestra is pure gold.'
‘St George's Chamber Orchestra has got to be one of the best things about being a Beckenham local. At the end of each concert I’m already looking forward to the next one.’
'Your programmes are always imaginitive and the playing first class.'
'I have really enjoyed the concerts over these last years. So good and so convenient for me. Long may you continue!'
'I greatly value the opportunity and experience you provide of "going round the corner" and hearing professionals at work. Thank you so very much.'
'It was a wonderful concert, very special. No need for any of us to travel up to the Wigmore Hall etc for a performance of the quality we have here in Beckenham. And afterwards we were home again in 10 minutes - fantastic!!'
'An absolutely first class concert - I wonder how many locals actually realise how lucky they are to have performances of such high quality on their doorstep. It was a privilege to be there.'
