We are delighted to announce that the Scottish guitarist Sean Shibe has won the Young Artist category at the RPS Music Awards. The awards ceremony was held at The Brewery in the City of London on Wednesday 9 May 2018.
The awards, presented in association with BBC Radio 3, are the most prestigious recognition for live classical music in the UK, and this year celebrate outstanding achievement in 2017. Highlights of the awards will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Monday 14 May.
Shibe, the jury stated, “exemplifies the criteria of the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards in his approach to creativity, excellence and understanding by extending boundaries and challenging pre-conceptions of the guitar in solo and collaborative performance; his artistry and dedication are compelling”.
