THIS EVENT HAS HAPPENED, BUT FEEL FREE TO VIEW THE RECORDED SESSION HERE:

Event information

A roundtable discussion with four of the Royal Holloway 2019-2020 Orchestral Scholarship programme, joined in the audience by all of this year’s scholars, chaired and hosted by Director of Orchestras, Rebecca Miller.

Topics will include their experiences as leaders within the orchestra, leading sectionals, their work in side-by-side workshops with the London Mozart Players, and leadership sessions with members of the Tippett Quartet.

We hope to be joined by one or two former orchestral scholars from recent years to reflect on how their experience as orchestral scholars has influenced/enhanced their career paths (or not!)

About the Orchestral Scholarship Programme

The only programme of its kind in the UK, the Orchestral Scholarship programme offers the unique opportunity to combine intensive high-level orchestral performance with a broader university experience. Scholars hold leadership positions with the College’s Symphony and Chamber Orchestras, as well as performing together as their own ensemble. They receive training with the London Mozart Players, orchestral coaching from the London Philharmonic Orchestra, The Philharmonia, English Chamber Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra.
