Event information

Instrumentalists from Junior Guildhall compete for the School’s prestigious Lutine Prize, Junior Guildhall’s equivalent of the Senior School’s Gold Medal competition.

Six students are selected from a preliminary round to perform in the final and the winner is given the opportunity to perform a concerto with one of the Junior Guildhall ensembles, in addition to a cash prize.

This year's finalists are: Ivan Cherednichenko Carrillo (cello), Emma Demetriades (violin), Dominic-Lucian Drutac (violin), Ned Pettitt (trombone), Joshua Slater (piano) and Thomas Young (clarinet).

The Lutine Prize was founded in 1982, originally supported by Lloyds of London, who named the competition after their Lutine bell. The bell was formerly rung at the insurers' offices to announce the loss of a ship or other news of great importance to the underwriters.  Previous winners of the Prize include Thomas Adès, Tom Poster and Annabel Thwaite, and many have gone on to have professional careers in music.

Free, no tickets required
