For the outstanding quality and scope of the performances and work in any context of a group of musicians, no fewer than three, in the UK.
‘For sheer quality and innovation in their 50th birthday year, and for showing us all how an ensemble can serve its community yet still have a striking international impact.’
You can see the moment this award was announced as part of the full RPS Awards Presentation, broadcast online on Wednesday 18 November 2020.
This year's shortlist for Ensemble was decided by an independent panel drawn from across the music profession comprising:
- Jonathon Heyward, conductor
- Jennifer Martin, Chief Executive, The Cumnock Tryst
- James Williams, Managing Director, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
- Oliver Condy, Editor, BBC Music Magazine
A fifth panellist had to withdraw at late notice.
