Trinity Laban Invites Applications for The Carne Trust Junior Fellowship for an Individual 2018/19

Tue 30 January 2018

Exceptional young performers or composers embarking on a professional career are invited to apply for the £6000 award.

Held for a maximum of two years, The Carne Trust Junior Fellowship for an Individual is designed to provide a dynamic young musician with the means and the time to concentrate on their personal artistic development.

Applications for 2018/19 close on 26 Feb 2018. Short-listed applicants will be invited to audition on Monday 26 March 2018.

Fellows not only gain experience and support, but also contribute to the artistic culture and profile of the Conservatoire community, and are a source of advice and inspiration.

Viola player Stephen Upshaw, the 2016/17 Junior Fellow, commented –

“The year spent at Trinity Laban as a Richard Carne Fellow was an invaluable stepping stone in my career. The artistic freedom and support provided allowed me to further solidify my musical goals and to launch a number of ambitious projects I had long dreamt of realizing. I can’t say thank you enough and look back on that time with immense gratitude and fondness!”

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 Claire Wickes (2014-15, flute), Principal Flute of the English National Opera Orchestra, and Harriet MacKenzie (2015-16, violin), whose recent CD of 21st century concertos was described as “rivetingly incisive” by Richard Morrison in The Times.

Applications are also open for our Junior Fellowships in Piano Accompaniment.
