A competition for musicians aged 17 to 24 on 27/03/2021. Initial entries by video recordings will be reduced to around 12 by a panel of professional musicians to take part in a live semi final on 20 February 2021. From there, three finalists will be selected to perform a full concerto to a public audience with Stockport Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the chair of the competition judges, Philip Ellis with a panel including competition patron, Jennifer Pike. The winner will receive a prize of £1000 and perform a further concerto with the orchestra the following season. The two runners up receive £300 each.
NOTE: Initial applications for the competition are online and so can be made in safety. If, as a result of the coronavirus crisis, it becomes necessary to cancel the event at any stage, or if a competitor is prevented from travelling to any live round, those remaining in the competition at that point who are affected will be refunded their entry fee.
