LIFEM is hosting the 3rd biennial Early Music Young Ensemble Competition this year. The competition culminates in a live final on Friday 11th November at St. Margaret’s Church in Blackheath. Up to four ensemble finalists will compete in front of the adjudicators and a live audience to win the top prize: £1,500 and a recital at LIFEM 2023. We can't wait to hear all the young, upcoming talent on the Early Music scene!
Our adjudicators this year are Laurence Cummings (Conductor & Harpsichordist, Academy of Ancient Music), Tatty Theo (Baroque Cello, The Brook Street Band) and Belén Nieto Galán (Historical Flutes, Taracea).
Applications are now closed, and we were delighted to have entries from ensembles across the globe. We will announce the finalists in September.
