George Todica was born in Romania in 1993 and started playing the piano
aged six. His early talent was such that he started taking part in festivals
and competitions from the age of eight. Since then he has won over 20
prizes in international competitions.
His concert in Huntingdon is part of the prize for winning the Norah Sande
Award in 2019. He has also won first prize at the Llangollen International
Eisteddfod and at other competitions in France, Italy and Scotland.
He studied for six years at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow
and then took an Artist Diploma Course at the Royal College of Music. He
made his orchestral debut at the age of 14 and has played as a soloist with
several orchestras across Europe.
George has been supported in his career by various awards, scholarships
from the Tillet Trust and two ‘Britton Awards’ from Help Musicians UK.
He is currently being supported by ‘Talent Unlimited’ where he featured as
Artist of the Month in August 2019.
His programme will include popular pieces by Chopin, Rachmaninov,
Ravel, Grieg and Beethoven, together with what he calls a ‘sprinkling of
Romanian music’ (Enescu and Silvestri).
