Everyday Rather Live in Classics Eras

Young musicians awarded by Royal Philharmonic Society

Young musicians across the British  are being encouraged to make music with a series of charitable grants from the Royal Philharmonic Society. The awards, totally £81,5000, celebrate and support musicians at the beginning of their careers.

Six composers under the age of 29 have been selected to write new works for the Society, as part of their annual composition prize. It’s not just young composers being recognised: two instrumentalists have been awarded the Julius Isserlis Scholarship, which allows them to fund their studies abroad, and 21 young students will benefit from grants to help them buy instruments.
