Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition


The Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition, created by Donatella Flick in 1990, aims to help a young conductor establish an international conducting career, bridging the gap between conservatoire training and professional life.

The winner of the competition is offered, in addition to an award of £15,000, the opportunity to become Assistant Conductor of the LSO for up to one year.

The competition is open to conductors under the age of 35 who are citizens of the 28 countries having full membership of the European Union.

The 2014 competition took place from 6–8 December 2014. The winner was Elim Chan. 

The next competition will take place in 2016. Please check back for more details of entries and dates.
