The Gold Medal is the Guildhall School’s most prestigious prize for musicians. This year is the turn of the singers, who will perform a short programme with piano accompaniment followed by a second half of arias with the Guildhall Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dominic Wheeler. We caught up with finalists Bianca Andrew, Samuel Carl, Josep-Ramon Olivé and Daniel Shelvey to talk about their Gold Medal experiences, the road to the final and how they're preparing for a concert in the Barbican Hall. This year's Gold Medal final takes place on 5 May in the Barbican Hall. Tickets are available from the Barbican Box Office (http://www.barbican.org.uk/music/event-detail.asp?ID=20568).
