The Competition is supported by funding from Creative Europe through the prestigious EEEmerging+ programme www.eeemerging.eu. The partners are currently seeking a grant extension which, if confirmed, would enable them to offer an ensemble a prize giving access to the scheme for 2022-23. We hope to have clarification around March 2022 and will post an update here as soon as practical. To be eligible, a group must consist of 3-9 musicians and have been established for no longer than 5 years.
PRIZE FOR THE MOST PROMISING YOUNG ARTIST/S
£1,000 to be awarded by the jury either to the most promising individual instrumentalist or to the most promising ensemble, specialising in baroque repertoire. To be eligible for the prize, an individual must be both an EU or UK national and an orchestral instrumentalist; an ensemble must consist of at least 50% EU or UK nationals and 50% instrumentalists. This prize is endowed by the EUBO Development Trust.’

The concert will be subject to the availability of the artists on the dates offered, and subject to negotiation of fees. If any member of the winning ensemble has attended one of Cambridge Early Music's Summer Schools as a full-time participant, a further award of £500 will be made to the chosen ensemble.
