Founded in 2010, St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition focuses on nurturing the fledgling careers of the UK’s most talented and hard-working young chamber musicians.
The competition’s prize includes a series of professional engagements around Britain (including up to 12 with Making Music member groups at a special rate of £250 per artist), offering the invaluable opportunity of paid performance experience and professional exposure.
The competition’s inaugural winners the Piatti Quartet gave over 16 concerts as a result of their prize earning over £13,500 in fees and gaining the benefits of experience and industry contacts which in turn lead to their Wigmore Hall debut in London in 2011.
The St Martin’s Chamber Music Competition 2019 has now finished. Applications for the 2020 Competition will open in October 2019.
