Making Music is announcing the winners of the Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists award: Matilda Lloyd (trumpet), Florian Mitrea (piano), Jonathan Radford (saxophone), Rosanna Rolton (harp), Emily Sun (violin) and Luba Tunnicliffe (viola).

The Young Artists award celebrates the best of the UK’s young musical talent, at the same time as providing Making Music member groups with an affordable way of booking top–flight soloists for their concert series. Each year it is presented to some of the UK’s brightest young musicians.
The six winners have been chosen through auditions by a distinguished panel of experienced musicians.
Making Music offers these Young Artists for subsidised engagements to its 3,200+ member groups, which pay the artist (and the accompanist where appropriate) a set fee of £250 each and claim £150 in subsidy for a solo artist or £250 where an accompanist is required.
The Young Artists award was created in 1961 and has helped to launch the careers of dozens of young musicians including Steven Isserlis, Elizabeth Watts and Craig Ogden. It is made possible by the generosity of the Philip and Dorothy Green Music Trust, which promotes young artists and composers.
