60min Concerts in Highbury & Islington, London

Apply to Perform at 60min Concerts


​​Each 60min Concert starts with a short performance of up to five minutes in length by a young musician. Any instrumentalist, ensemble or vocalist aged 18 or under can apply. The chosen performer or ensemble receives The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Foundation Prize of £50. 

At the end of the year, one performance will be chosen to receive The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Prize of £250. In addition, the winner performs in the final December concert of the season, which is also a fundraiser for the Foundation. 

See videos below for the standard of previous winners. Students should be of Grade 5 or Suzuki book 5 level or above, with their piece preferably memorised (not necessary for chamber music). Applicants should send a short letter of recommendation from their teacher, along with a video of their piece to Yoko Misumi at 60minconcerts@gmail.com

Parents should buy tickets to the concert. We can provide an accompanist if needed, at additional cost.
