- Incorporated Society of Musicians Prize for Collaboration with Ben Lunn – Composer and Conductor, Hebrides Ensemble and The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh.
In addition, Composer Ben Lunn won the RCS Award for Making it Happen for our PRS for Music Foundation Talent Development Partnership supported commission Diversions.
