Support Emerging Musicians Fellowships

Our Emerging Musicians Fellowship programme aims to attract and train a diverse range of outstanding orchestral musicians at the beginning of their career. We are aware of the many significant challenges that early career musicians can face in successfully establishing themselves in a highly competitive industry. We want to help remove barriers and focus on discovering and empowering new talent and potential.

We will immerse four musicians in every aspect of professional orchestral life each year – through rehearsals, performances, work with our Youth Company, and engagement in our outreach projects through In Harmony Liverpool and our NHS partnerships. 

Notably, the Fellowship programme is the first paid opportunity of its kind in the North of England.

We are delighted to announce the appointment of four musicians who have been selected for the first annual Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Emerging Musicians Fellowship.

The four musicians appointed as Fellows for the 2022/23 season are: 

  • Angus Bain - Violin
  • Rachael Watson - Flute
  • Cameron Chin-See - Trumpet 
  • Matthew Brett Percussion & Timpani 

Each musician will be mentored by a member of the Orchestra and will receive instrument lessons from another Orchestral musician. 

During their time with us, each Fellow will have full access to the pioneering Musicians’ Performance & Wellbeing Programme, including physiotherapy, sports massage, injury prevention screening, audiology, and performance psychology.

We will recruit our next cohort of four musicians in Autumn 2022, with their Fellowship running from June 2023 through to June 2024. Please check back here for further information nearer to the time.

Each year, we are hoping to raise £5,000 per Fellow (£20,000 in total) so that we can deliver this programme to its full potential. Please consider making a donation in support of this life-changing Fellowship.
