Winners of the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards are announced at the RPS Awards on Thursday 28 November 2019, held for the first time at Battersea Arts Centre in London, and presented in association with BBC Radio 3.
At the Awards presentation in November, two further honours will be announced: the newest recipient of the coveted RPS Gold Medal, the highest honour in music, which has been awarded to outstanding musicians since 1870 and whose recipients include the late Jessye Norman, Dame Mitsuko Uchida, Sir Simon Rattle, Leonard Bernstein, Benjamin Britten, Kathleen Ferrier, Edward Elgar and Johannes Brahms. The RPS will also reveal the winner of its brand new Gamechanger Award for an individual, group or organisation who has done inspirational work breaking new ground in classical music.
If you would like to attend the RPS Awards, tickets are available now. The evening involves a welcome reception with sparkling wine and canapés, the awards presentation – with theatre-style seating and live music – and a post-show party with food and wine and the chance to meet this year’s winners and nominees as well as attendees from across the classical music profession.
