Making Music is delighted to announce the winners of the Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists award: Elizabeth Bass (harp), Sirius Chau (flute), Eleanor Corr (violin), Natasha Page (soprano), and Antoine Préat (piano)
You can read more about the artists in their bios and repertoire, and if you'd like to see them give a short performance, join us for our online Young Artists award presentation concert, which will be part of our online awards ceremony and AGM on Tuesday 8 September.
The annual Young Artists awards celebrate the best of the UK’s young musical talent, as well as providing Making Music member groups with an affordable way of booking top-flight soloists for performances.
The five winners have been chosen through auditions by a distinguished panel of experienced musicians chaired by Dr Christopher Fifield and including conductor and composer Peter Ash, pianist Daniel Tong and voice specialist Jane Irwin.
New Livestreaming Subsidy – Philip & Dorothy Green Young Artists
To help both our promoter group members and the Young Artists put performances on in this time of pandemic, we are pleased to be able to offer a brand new Livestreaming Subsidy of £150, which covers the full fee agreed with the Young Artists for online performances.
For in-person performances, the Young Arists artists can be booked for a set fee of £250 each, and promoter group members can claim £150 in subsidy for a solo artist or £250 where an accompanist is required. Find out more on our subsidies page.
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.
