Meet the performers: Avram

Just five days to go until Jess Gillam comes to Manchester! She will perform live in support of Awards for Young Musicians at the beautiful Hallé St Peter’s

We’ve been highlighting the young musicians on our Awards programme who will be performing throughout the evening. So far we’ve featured pianist siblings Ellie and Lewis, Saxophonist Maisie Jo and musical family The McGuires. Today we would like to introduce you to twelve-year-old cellist Avram.

Avram’s biggest love in life is music: especially cello, composing, and recently conducting. He also enjoys exploring nature, playing table tennis, dancing, playing chess, sculpting, and making things by hand. A particular interest in Jewish music, from religious melodies to folk Klezmer, has led to plans for a community project sharing Jewish cello music.

Avram feels very lucky to have received support and encouragement from cellists around the world, including Guy Johnston, Alban Gerhardt, and Raphael Wallfisch.

Avram’s greatest passion is chamber music, and he’s hugely grateful to AYM for giving him the opportunity to participate in chamber music workshops. He also plays in a cello duet (The Matavi Duo) with fellow AYM Award winner, Matias Yung.

AYM is supporting Avram for the first time this year through The Dr Linda Patterson Awards.

You can see Avram perform Bruch – Kol Nidrei Op.47 at the Hallé St Peter’s on Tuesday 6 September. He will be accompanied by pianist David Jones.

Avram says:

“I’m really excited to be playing in Manchester for the first time, and especially in the amazing venue of Hallé St Peter’s!”
