The 2020 RPS Awards are almost upon us. Here’s a little trailer for what’s in store:

Do join us for the RPS Awards which will stream on our website at 7.00pm on Wednesday 18 November. If you can’t join us then, they’ll remain online for you to watch afterwards.

In a brisk broadcast we expect to last around 75 minutes, presenter Georgia Mann and RPS Chairman John Gilhooly OBE will announce the winners of 14 awards. These include the new Inspiration Award honouring the extraordinary music-making that has uplifted the nation in lockdown. There will be musical performances from several nominees, specially filmed at the Wigmore Hall. We’re also particularly excited to present this year’s RPS Gold Medal to a genuine international treasure…

You can find full details of all the artists and accomplishments shortlisted for this year’s Awards here.
