The Keyboard Charitable Trust
The Keyboard Trust helps young keyboard players, aged 18-30, make the transition from formal studies to a fully professional career which, for successful candidates, includes opportunities to perform in venues worldwide – and introductions and advice from its three Artistic Directors.
Young keyboard players wishing to apply should have a comprehensive repertoire of sufficient breadth, depth and imagination to be able responsibly to embrace international professional career opportunities. They should not normally be First Prizewinners of the major international piano competitions who have already been awarded multiple international performances.
We welcome applications from pianists, organists, players of historic keyboards (e.g. harpsichord and fortepiano) and players of any other acoustic keyboard instruments.
How to Apply
Email applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and include:
If the Artistic Directors feel able, in principle, to respond to the application, the next step would be to hear the artist in performance, preferably at a public concert or recital. Please include information about such events in your covering letter.
On approval of the application by the Trust’s Artistic Directors, the artist will be offered a ‘New Artist’ recital opportunity in London.
Applications may be submitted at any time and will be considered on an individual basis
