Bromsgrove Young  Musicians Platform

About the Platform

The Bromsgrove Young Musicians' Platform was founded in 2016 for school-age musicians up to 17 years old. The platform is run by the Trustees of The Bromsgrove International Musicians' Competition, which is open to musicians aged 18-25. This is a registered charity (no. 1155544).

The Platform is divided into two sections: juniors aged 9 to 13 years old, and seniors aged 14 to 17 years old. They have to be of a standard that is equivalent to Grade 4 (Junior Section) or Grade 6 (Senior Section). There will be an audition round prior to the concert and those musicians selected will play before a live audience in Routh Concert Hall at Bromsgrove School, when the bursary awards will be presented.

The total bursary monies of £2,550 (£1000 Senior winner, £750 Junior winner and £400 for each second prize) offers a youngster the chance to buy music lessons, sheet music or a new instrument.



The 2025 Platform auditions take place during February half-term (Friday, 21st February 2025 and Saturday, 22nd February 2025) in Routh Concert Hall at Bromsgrove School. The Final takes place on the afternoon of Saturday, 31st May 2025. Please read on to find out how you can compete or join us in the audience to support our young musicians.
