Students at Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, are to perform alongside the esteemed Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) this week as they compete for the BPO Concerto Prize.
The BPO Concerto Prize is a competition for solo performers, organised and staged by Birmingham Conservatoire in association with the BPO and is acknowledged as the Conservatoire’s premier instrumental competition.
Originally known as The Ludlow Prize, the competition was founded in memory of David Ludlow, who was a widely respected and talented violinist who conducted the BPO in its formative years.
Four students will be performing a concerto of their choice at Birmingham Conservatoire on Sunday 21 April alongside the BPO. Winners of the Prize are eligible for a substantial cash award at the discretion of the Trustees of the Prize.
