Welcome to the WIMC 2019

The biennial Whitgift International Music Competition, established in 2013, has been a tremendous success. We are delighted to invite applications for 2019, and look forward to some more outstanding entries.

Previous Grand Prize winners have enjoyed a unique musical programme at Whitgift, including tuition from some of the world’s leading string players, and opportunities to perform with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. With a range of exciting and valuable prizes on offer, including the possibility of a fully-funded education at Whitgift, one of Britain’s finest day and boarding schools, our 2019 competition promises to attract many talented musicians.

We will, once again, welcome a distinguished adjudicating panel, including world-renowned musicians and industry professionals, to work alongside Whitgift’s Director of Music, Rosanna Whitfield, and Director of Orchestral Music, Philip Winter.

We look forward to receiving your application.


Mr Chris Ramsey
