RPS Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize
The RPS Albert and Eugenie Frost Prize offers £5,000 towards development of performance opportunities.
Who is it open to?
It is open to violin, viola or cello players, in a trio or quartet (together with the possibility of a piano), to be used to support performance opportunities and career development, particularly in the field of chamber music. The maximum age of an ensemble player is 28 at the application closing date.
Respecting the wishes of the Prize’s founders, the Trustees wish to support the development of chamber music and particularly to encourage string players who are British or have a strong connection with the UK. Optimally there should be some British contingent among the players, and, in any case, musicians must be based in the UK for throughout 2020. If any of the musicians are from outside of the EU, they must have the necessary visas enabling 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.
The winner(s) will be asked to submit a proposal to the RPS for approval before the payment is released. (The money cannot be used for instrument purchase.)
Successful applicants will be invited to audition in London on Sunday 27 October 2019.
