The Royal College of Music (RCM) has announced a new one-year String Quartet Fellowship offering coaching, mentoring and access to a global network of professional contacts.
Funded by support from the late Albert Frost, the fellowship offers ‘ensemble coaching and mentoring from the RCM’s world-class professors and a significant performance profile at the college.’
Members of the successful quartet will have full use of resources including practice and rehearsal rooms, and become ambassadors for the college in the wider musical world.
Commenting on the fellowship, Mark Messenger, RCM head of strings, said: ‘I am delighted to announce this initiative, which provides an inspirational and creative home for the next generation of string quartets.
‘They will greatly benefit from the Royal College of Music’s world-renowned coaching, mentoring and performance opportunities. The quartet will also enjoy membership of the RCM’s global community of musicians, which offers the chance to engage with diverse interpretations and experiences of the repertoire.’
The closing date for applications to the RCM String Quartet Fellowship is 4 February 2019.
