The leisure-time music sector is thriving with talent and creativity that can often go unrecognised. This year, Making Music is delighted to be expanding its awards to include music creators, arrangers and group projects.
The prize honours the remarkable contribution of Sir Charles to both amateur music, as a former president of Making Music, and to British musicianship and composition. It was launched to mark the renowned conductor's 75th birthday.
The President’s Award recognises the achievements of those who volunteer for Making Music. Nominations are considered each July and announced annually at Making Music's Council Meeting.
Throughout the years, many individuals from all walks of life volunteer for Making Music, giving up their time and energies to help us run the organisation. The President's Award was launched early in 2010 in recognition of their exceptional service.
Nominations are invited from both staff and board members.
