Event details

SHOWCASE is a platform to help give exposure to the talented pre-professional student performers within the Music Department at the University of Southampton. The Music Department has a rich history of developing world-class performers including jazz singer Joe Stilgoe and Mercury-nominated, singer-songwriter Anna Calvi. Our artists are from all genres, an eclectic mix of high-quality music.

Today’s performers include the oboist Henrietta Cooke, solo pianist Adam Rean, and Lucy Mellenfield’s pop/folk group Candelae.

Influenced by indie-pop band London Grammar, singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, and various jazz artists, Candelae are a 6-piece alternative band based in Southampton. Led by singer-songwriter Lucy Mellenfield, Candelae contribute to bringing new, original music to the Southampton music scene.

Adam Rean is a current second year Music and German student at the University of Southampton and has been playing the piano since the tender age of six. Adam grew up in the small town of South Woodham Ferrers in Essex where opportunities to perform in public were difficult to come by; hence, he is thoroughly enjoying the many occasions in which he is able to perform at University. He has recently passed his ATCL performance diploma with distinction under the guidance of Sylvia Bowden and has ambitions of pursuing a career in musical performance beyond his undergraduate degree. Adam hopes to study for a masters degree in the near future as well as expanding on the number of students he already teaches the piano to.



Our SHOWCASE Series forms part of our established professional lunchtime concert series and all the performers are available to hire for your event. Please contact for further information.
