Exciting news! Announcing the finalists of our Samuel Coleridge-Taylor prize
At the start of this year, we launched our Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Prize. The prize was created to support young composers from underrepresented backgrounds, as part of our commitment to enable more young people to embark on a career within the classical music industry.
From a pool strong applicants, we’re very excited to have selected our three finalists who will have the chance to work with a professional composer to develop their work through coaching and mentoring over the coming months. The winner will be selected by a panel of industry experts and have their composition premiered as part of our Music Through the Ages concert at St John’s, Upper Norwood in January 2024.
