Trinity Laban Invites Applications For 2018/19 Junior Fellowships in Piano Accompaniment

Fri 19 January 2018

Exceptional young pianists embarking on a professional career in accompaniment are invited to apply for two £8000 awards.

Held for a maximum of two years, The Junior Fellowships in Piano Accompaniment provide a valuable opportunity to gain relevant accompaniment experience in a variety of contexts and to further develop performance skills necessary for a successful career.

Applications for 2018/19 close on 23 Feb 2018. Short-listed applicants will be invited to audition on Friday 23 March 2018.

Fellows not only gain experience and support for themselves, but also contribute to the Conservatoire community. They perform alongside instrumental and vocal students – which may include accompanying departmental classes, examinations and one-to-one lessons as well as public recitals – and are a source of advice and inspiration.

Current Trinity Laban Junior Fellow in Piano Accompaniment Alessandro Viale comments –

The range of opportunities that Trinity Laban is able to offer really impressed me. It’s not only about accompanying wonderful musicians but also about developing your own ideas as a well-rounded artist.”

The value, impact and success of Trinity Laban’s Junior Fellowship programme are illustrated by an impressive list of past recipients who have forged, or are embarking upon, dynamic and prolific careers. They include prize-winning concert pianist, chamber musician, and répétiteur Elizabeth Rossiter (2012-13), and award-winning pianist and collaborative performer Panaretos Kyriatzidis (2014-16).
