This year's Avison Ensemble Young Musicians' Awards 2015 Finals were held on Sunday 15 February 2015 at the Literary and Philosophical Society, Newcastle.

The Awards assessors heard fourteen finalists for the three categories of Grades 1-3, 4 - 6 and 7 and above and two small chamber groups. At the prize winners' concert in April the winners will be presented with engraved glass trophies created by the North East glass artist Dominic Fonde which are inscribed with music from the Avison workbooks. These are displayed in the winners' schools for a year. The Awards were founded in 2006.

We're grateful to the Literary and Philosophical Society for hosting this year's Finals and for generously presenting each of the winners with a year's membership. www.litandphil.org.uk
