After gaining a degree in mathematics at Imperial College London, Gamal Khamis completed his formal musical education at the Royal College of Music. He was introduced to the piano aged 4, and was 10 when he first performed at Wigmore Hall. Gamal won the Award for Accompanists at the 2017 Royal Over-Seas League competition and the Help Musicians UK Accompanist’s Prize at the 2017 Kathleen Ferrier Awards. In 2016 he made his debut at the Marryat Players Chamber Music Festival and the Flatirons Chamber Music Festival Colorado, performed live on BBC Newsnight with violinist Vilde Frang, and gave four recitals as part of the Royal Over-Seas League Edinburgh Fringe Series. Upcoming plans include a tour of Gamal’s and actor Christopher Kent’s First World War performance entitled Never Such Innocence, and concerts in Australia and New Zealand alongside violinist Emily Sun. He is also a member of the Lipatti Piano Quartet. Gamal is grateful to The Carne Trust for their continued generous support.
