The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is now accepting applications for its 2024/25 Emerging Musicians Fellowship, whilst the orchestra's Music and Health Programme has just celebrated its 15th anniversary 

 The fellowship is a paid development opportunity for emerging orchestral musicians, offering early-career orchestral musicians an immersive experience of professional orchestral life, on and off the concert platform. It has been designed to attract the widest talent pool possible and there is no upper age limit for applicants. 

This opportunity will culminate in a final wrap week including an exit audition, an intimate chamber performance programmed and performed alongside other Fellowship Musicians, and sessions around ongoing musical and professional development. The wrap week is also an opportunity to welcome the next cohort of Fellowship Musician to the programme and grow the Alumni network.

There are four places available for the 2024/25 Fellowship. Applications are welcome from the following instruments: 

  • Strings: Violin, Viola
  •  Woodwind: Flute, Piccolo with Flute, Bassoon, Contrabassoon with Bassoon 
  •  Brass: Trumpet, French Horn, Percussion & Timpani

The orchestra is also celebrating 15 years of its Music and Health Programme. The programme is now the longest-running and largest of its kind. It is an initiative that harnesses the power of music to promote well-being and improve the mental and physical health of participants. 

Working across 27 wards in 4 partner NHS trusts the programme has:

  • Supported 18,000 patients and participants living with mental and physical ill-health across the Liverpool City Region
  •  Conducted 15,000 hours of music-making
  •  Presented sessions in 50 health, social care and community settings
  •  Hosted 35 participant-led celebration events at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
The 15th anniversary celebrations will see current and past participants from across the programme take part in special performances both on the stage and in hospital wards.
