The awards are administered and funded by The Musicians’ Company with the support of The Wavendon Foundation and friends and family of Eddie Harvey.
For over 500 years the Worshipful Company of Musicians has supported the music profession in all its forms.
Every year the Company gives a range of awards, scholarships and medals, which make a real difference to the lives of outstanding young singers, composers and instrumentalists as they make the transition from study to a professional career in music.
The winner of the Dankworth Big Band Award is Charles Bates for his work Eyes Open. The winner of the Small Band Award is Wilber Whitta for his composition Wotjek. The winner of the Eddie Harvey Jazz Arranger Award is Billy Marrows for his arrangement of Leonard Bernstein's Lucky to be me.
All three winning works will be performed in this special celebratory concert.
