I have been selected for the BBC/Arts Council of Northern Ireland Young Musicians’ Platform Award 2013 /14
The Young Musicians’ Platform is awarded bi-annually by the ACNI and recognises the talents of up to three high quality musicians providing three individual awards of £5,000. This financial award enables recipients to learn from a master musician, teacher or composer either in Northern Ireland or abroad.
As well as this training opportunity, the BBC offers each recipient two professional radio broadcast engagements with the Ulster Orchestra. Performances at this level raise not only the professional profile of the young musician, but also give a boost to their performance experience.
