RPS Duet Prize for Young Composers

Awarded by the RPS and Duet Group to an outstanding young composer. 

The RPS Duet Prizes for Young Composers and Instrumentalists were founded through Ensemble Philharmonic – an initiative launched by the RPS and Duet Group that offers opportunities to students at secondary schools to experience and explore the classical music profession.

Alongside tickets to concerts, masterclasses, talks and project work, the RPS Prizes are two of the ways in which Ensemble Philharmonic is supporting the next generation of talented musicians. The inaugural Prize was awarded to composer Freya Ireland in 2016.
