Now in its 5th year, the Award looks ahead to the future of musical performance. As well as giving our own young musicians a platform during the Festival, we are also playing our part in sustaining a high quality of musicianship in future generations. The first BYM took place in 2017 and established a high standard. Last year we introduced a preliminary round in the shape of informal workshops. This not only enables us to choose the number of applicants who go forward to the final adjudication but it is also a great opportunity for them to work on their competition pieces with top professional musicians.
Students entering the award benefit from opportunities such as performing in front of discerning Barnes Music Festival audiences, gaining prestige for themselves, their schools and teachers, and receiving feedback and guidance from world-class musicians.
