Student composer wins RLPO competition

Congratulations to Grace-Evangeline Mason, winner of the RLPO’s Christopher Brooks Composition Competition.

The fourth year undergraduate is the second RNCM composer to receive the accolade, following in the footsteps of 2014 alumna Bethan Morgan-Williams. It adds to a fantastic year of achievements for the 23-year-old, who made her BBC Proms début this summer in addition to be chosen to take part in the LSO Panufnik Scheme.

Established in 2015, the Christopher Brooks Composition Prize is open to a composer aged 18-30 living, studying or working in the counties of Merseyside, Cheshire, Cumbria, Lancashire, and Greater Manchester. It provides an opportunity for a North West composer to develop his or her talent and access mentoring and guidance from leading artists and industry professionals, and culminates in the composer writing a new work for performance by Ensemble 10/10.
