Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Emerging Musicians Fellowship

What is the Emerging Musicians Fellowship? 

The Emerging Musicians Fellowship is a development opportunity for emerging orchestral musicians, offering a paid immersive experience with a fee of £2,000. 

Our second cohort of Fellowship Musicians were announced in June and will be undertaking their year-long placement in the 2023-24 season. You can find out more about them here. 


Emerging Musicians Fellowship 2024-25

Applications for the 2024-25 Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Emerging Musicians Fellowship are now closed.

Applications for the 2024 Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra Emerging Musicians Fellowship are now open and will close at midday on Thursday 30 November 2023. 

In the 2024-25 season, four Fellowship Musicians will be welcomed into the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, undertaking five patches of work. The structure of the patches include inductions, rehearsals, performances, training (musical and non-musical) and education work, spread across a season.  

Fellowship Musicians will rehearse and perform alongside Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra musicians as part of the orchestral schedule for three intensive weeks. 
 
Fellowship Musicians will attend a two-day induction in Liverpool on 19 – 20 June 2024.Musicians must be available on these dates to undertake the Fellowship.  

The Fellowship will culminate in a final wrap week including an exit audition (to join our regular extras list, or for ongoing development), a more intimate chamber performance alongside other Fellowship Musicians, and events to welcome the next cohort of Fellowship Musicians.


Fellowship Musicians will:  

  • Be partnered with a mentor from their section within the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, paired up according to agreed areas of musical development and interests (musical genre and areas of work off-stage such as chamber/education). Fellowship Musicians will meet regularly with their mentors throughout the season, who will support their growth on and off the platform.    
  • Receive a minimum of five instrumental lessons with a musician from the Orchestra to develop their skills as an instrumentalist and an orchestral musician.    
  • Receive a tailor-made training programme based on their aims outside of orchestral performance, as well as increasing understanding of how orchestral life works.   
  • Attend cohort-wide training including how to do a successful audition, how to liaise with orchestra managers, how to present/improve CVs, orchestral etiquette, how a full-time orchestra schedule works, and how to manage a portfolio career.   
  • Have full access to the pioneering Liverpool Philharmonic Musicians Performance and Wellbeing Programme, including physiotherapy, sports massage, injury prevention screening, audiology, and performance psychology. 
  • Gain practical experience across Liverpool Philharmonic, including within the Learning and Participation programme. Fellowship Musicians will also build knowledge in various areas of the organisation, for example the music library, marketing, programming and fundraising departments.    
  • Become ambassadors of the Fellowship, representing Liverpool Philharmonic at a community, local, and national level during and after their Fellowship.   
  • Be involved in welcoming the 2025-26 cohort of Fellowship Musicians. 
  • Be encouraged to come to concerts at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. 
  • Play an integral role in the ongoing evaluation of the Fellowship, through regular meetings with Mentors, Fellowship Lead Musicians, and other Liverpool Philharmonic staff.
