'Ombra mai fu' George Frideric Handel
Classic FM are sponsoring the award for the Best Classical Music Education Initiative in Rhinegold Publishing's inaugural Music Teacher Awards For Excellence.
This award will honour an education initiative which has used classical music in an innovative way, shown musical excellence and had a positive impact on a significant number of participants.
The six nominees for the Best Classical Music Education Initiative were chosen by a selection panel comprising the editorial teams of Music Teacher and Classical Music magazines, chaired by Christopher Walters, editor of Music Teacher. The panel judged potential nominees against the criteria of musical excellence, impact and innovation.
Any classical music education initiative based in the UK was eligible for this award, but the panel felt strongly that the chosen six initiatives scored highest against the agreed criteria.
The awards will be announced at the Music Teacher Awards on the evening of March 20th at London's Barbican. Supported by Music Teacher Magazine, the awards have been recently launched to celebrate excellence in the UK’s music education sector.
The awards take place during the inaugural Music Education Expo, one of the first events of its kind to take place in the UK. It takes place on March 20-21 at the Barbican, is free to attend, and was established by Rhinegold Publishing. To find out more information about the event and how to attend, visit the website.
Vote for the nominees below before voting closes on Friday 8th March at midday. Only one vote per e-mail address allowed.
