Royal Over-Seas League

We are excited to announce that we were awarded the Elias Fawcett Prize for Outstanding Ensemble in the final of the Royal Over-Seas League Competition 2018!

We performed Tomasi and Barber in the semi-finals on Monday morning. Later that day, our oboist Polly received an exciting phone call informing us that we had made the final four, and that the final round was taking place the following evening!

There were four finalists in total and we were the second to perform. We began with Ravel String Quartet arranged by our own horn player, Matthew Horn. This was followed by Ligeti’s Six Bagatelles.


After a long discussion by the panel, they awarded the winners!
