RPS Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award
The RPS Henderson Chamber Ensemble Award is a new opportunity which offers £5,000 to an emerging, UK-based, chamber ensemble to be used for developing performance opportunities.
Who is it open to?
It is open to any chamber ensemble of 3 - 10 performers, in any combination of string, wind, brass, keyboard or percussion instruments. The maximum age of an ensemble player is 28 at the deadline. Ensemble members must either be in advanced professional training or in the early stages of their careers. The ensembles must have performed together for a minimum of 2 years.
Musicians must be based in the UK and, if from outside of the EU, have the necessary visas to enable them to perform regularly in the UK (without the need for individual work permits). The aim of the group must be to establish themselves as a performing ensemble and to develop the scope of the ensemble repertoire.
How can I apply?
Applications for 2018 have now closed but we will be opening applications for 2019 in the early Summer. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact the RPS with any queries about this opportunity, not answered on this web page.
Tim Walker, CEO and Artistic Director of the London Philharmonic Orchestra: I value the RPS for supporting what we do and in particular for stimulating an interest in new music.
