A new date for the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards

Annually, we present the RPS Music Awards celebrating excellence and innovation in classical music. Lately the Awards have taken place each May, celebrating achievements in the previous calendar year. Occasionally this has meant that work spanning the ‘classical’ season (September to August) has regrettably been ineligible as it began before the calendar year started. Drawing upon the views of friends and colleagues across the sector, we have decided to move the Awards to November so that they celebrate the most recent classical season. Duly, our next Awards will be in November 2019.

Owing to this transition, outstanding accomplishments in the first half of 2018 will be eligible for the 2019 Awards. The RPS will be welcoming nominations from the music profession and Society members from May 2019.
