Ensemble Prize

The Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation has founded the Ensemble Prize to provide long-term, individual support for the structural and artistic development of young ensembles. It comes with up to € 75.000 for each ensemble.

Numerous ensembles have discovered that – in a period of increasing professionalism – their success is accompanied by greater structural, legal, organisational and financial burdens. It is with this stabilisation phase that the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation would like to provide assistance through its award. It is important that a long-term solution can be suggested and implemented by the ensemble within the space of the award period. 

Applications for the Ensemble Prizes 2023/24 are open from January to 15 March 2023. Young, professional ensembles in the stabilisation phase can apply. Two thirds of the ensemble members should be younger than 35. The ensemble should be dedicated exclusively to contemporary repertoire. Applications are open to international and German ensembles. The funding period for applications submitted by March 2023 extends through 2024.

The prize is to be given independently of any other funding or prize of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. Ensemble Prizes and project support bursaries can thus be awarded simultaneously.

Please note: You can only apply for the Ensemble Förderpreis with this form. For project funding, you can apply here.
