Series and Events Award

Supported by PRS for Music

For a festival, themed series of performances, or truly unique performance event, presented digitally or for a live audience in the UK, that drew fresh interest to a facet of classical music.

The World How Wide - Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia

The World How Wide is a powerful musical evocation of local pride. Led by the Chorus of Royal Northern Sinfonia, singers across Northumberland poured their hearts into a new vocal re-telling of the timeless Tallis Fantasia by Vaughan Williams. Each element was recorded in isolation but the result is transcendent, with breathtaking cinematic vistas of the county emptied of its population – their spirit nonetheless resounding in song.’
