Alumni Feature: Alim Beisembayev

Alim Beisembayev was given an incredible opportunity to perform one of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s famous concertos to a sold out Royal Albert Hall as part of this year’s BBC Proms.

Alim was one of our residents from 2016 – 2020.

A last minute request replace another pianist ended up in performance recorded for television.

We would love to say a massive well done to Alim for taking that step and being brave. If you would like to read more on Alim’s inspirational story click here.
