15-year-old British pianist, Alanna Crouch, was invited to perform a Mozart piano concerto with the Barbados National Symphony Orchestra at the age of 5 and has since performed in the UK, USA and Barbados, appearing at venues including Frank Collymore Hall, Lansdowne Club, Savile Club, Carnegie Hall and Steinway Hall UK. Alanna began her studies with Tom Donald of London Contemporary School of Music and currently studies classical piano under Christine Croshaw of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and composition with Bohdan Syroyid. When she was 7, she attained high distinctions in ABRSM Grade 5 Jazz and ABRSM Grade 8 exams and went on to become the youngest person to pass the DipABRSM at age 8. Alanna was chosen as one of the Honorable Mention Winners of the American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition 2016 and performed at the winners’ concert at Carnegie Hall, New York. At 12, Alanna was awarded The Geoffrey Timms Prize at the Essex Young Musician of the Year competition in 2019. A keen composer since age 7, Alanna’s passion for storytelling has produced a catalogue of emotive pieces and film score compositions. ‘Princess Emma’, a short film collaboration with her older sister, Keira, won a series of awards (including Best Original Score and the Grand Jury Prize Winner for Best Student Short at the Imagine Rain Independent Film Awards 2021). She was also invited to perform an original piece as a supporting act for Dominic Ferris of the Piano Brothers, at Crazy Coqs, London in 2021 and more recently debuted another of her own compositions, at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of the Elena Cobb’s Star Prize, in April 2022. A growing number of her original pieces are now available on all music streaming services.
