Liverpool Philharmonic Fellowship for Emerging Musicians Open for Applications
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra has launched its Emerging Musicians Fellowship for the 2022–2023 season. The fellowship is a development opportunity for emerging orchestral musicians, offering an immersive experience of training, mentoring and performing, in addition to a fee of £2,000.
Applications are open now and close on 26 January 2022.
In the upcoming season, four fellows will be selected, one from each section of the orchestra, including violin or viola (strings); flute, piccolo, bassoon, or contrabassoon (woodwind); French horn or trumpet (brass); and timpani or harp (percussion). The successful musicians will be immersed within the orchestra’s activities, undertaking five patches of inductions, rehearsals, performances, training and education work, during four weeks spread over the period from September 2022 to July 2023. Fellows will rehearse and perform alongside the orchestra for three intensive weeks and will be partnered with a mentor from their section.
They will also be provided with a tailor-made training programme including a minimum of nine instrument lessons, and receive training to aid in the development of their careers, covering topics such as audition tips, liaising with orchestra managers, building a CV and portfolio, orchestra etiquette and more.
The Fellowship will culminate in a final wrap week including an exit audition to join the orchestra’s regular extras list; a chamber performance alongside other fellows; and events to welcome the next cohort of fellows.
