Justine Gormley piano
Justine Gormley, from Belfast, discovered her love of music when she was found as a toddler playing nursery rhymes by ear on the family piano. She graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music with a First Class Honours Bachelor’s degree under the tuition of John Gough, and is currently continuing her studies as a postgraduate scholar with Kathryn Stott. She has also been fortunate to have received significant mentorship from Barry Douglas at the Camerata Ireland Academy.
Justine is a recipient of the Northern Irish Arts Council Young Musician’s Platform Award, and she received one of the coveted Irish Heritage awards following a successful performance at London’s Wigmore Hall. She has performed as a soloist under the baton of David Brophy with the Ulster Orchestra and has broadcast on multiple occasions with BBC Radio Ulster. Also a keen chamber musician, Justine has performed alongside numerous internationally renowned artists such as Ailish Tynan, Michel Lethiec, Henri Demarquette, Richard Watkins, Kathryn Stott and Barry Douglas. She is a frequent performer at highly respected chamber music festivals such as the Clandeboye Music Festival and Belfast Music Society Chamber Music Festival.
