The Philharmonia Orchestra Martin Musical Scholarship Fund, administered by the Philharmonia Orchestra, has given invaluable support to countless young musicians since 1968. Usually over 60 awards are made each year. For young, gifted musicians, these awards enable them to either continue or complete an essential period of study that, due to financial constraints, may otherwise have been impossible. The culmination of the Fund’s commitment is to offer the opportunity of a recital at the Purcell Room at Southbank Centre's Queen Elizabeth Hall, which for these talented performers is an inspiring occasion that marks a milestone in their careers.
Many Martin Music Scholarship Fund award winners have gone on to extremely successful orchestral or solo careers with names such as Tasmin Little, Freddy Kempf, Michael Collins, Natalie Clein, Steven Isserlis and Jennifer Pike forming part of the Fund's alumni. Philharmonia Orchestra players have also been beneficiaries such as current members Byron Fulcher, Mark van de Wiel, Maya Iwabuchi and Graham Mitchell.
Please note: the deadline for applications closed on Friday 1 February 2013.
