Arts Council music investment recognised with Royal Philharmonic Society awards
Four Arts Council supported wins in the UK's most prestigious classical music awards.
This week, the Arts Council’s investment in music across London and the South East was recognised in the UK’s most prestigious awards for live classical music, the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Awards.
The projects display the variety in scope and scale of the Arts Council’s support, including the National Youth Orchestra, a music education hub crossing three London boroughs, an opera and music in a multi-story car park!
Helen Sprott, Director, Music, Arts Council, said: “The Arts Council works to get great arts and culture to everyone. These organisations are championing this mission through their innovative and engaging work and it’s brilliant to see this celebrated. It is particularly encouraging to see recognition of the vital work music education hubs are doing across the country.
Congratulations are owed not only to these winners but to all the talented and committed nominees.
