To form our very own recital series, complete with adventurous programmes, connected school concerts and intensive work in a school with strong migrational background - the BBT Award and its wonderful staff enabled us to do all of that. Thank you, BBT, and may we continue together to show people of all backgrounds and ages that chamber music is not an elite luxury, but a necessity and regular part of life.ATOS Trio"

BBT DEBATES - IS THE CONCERT HALL THE ONLY PLACE?BBT award and fellowship winners consider the pros and cons of purpose-built concert halls and other venues
How does a symphony orchestra sound in a car park? Or is it best appreciated in specially-built halls? BBT stirs the ongoing debate surrounding the idea of taking classical music out of the concert hall to imaginative and often unusual venues. Does this help cultivate new audiences? Younger audiences? Or does it compromise the music? Is taking down the barriers opening a pathway to more people enjoying classical music? Is the ultimate aim to get them into a concert hall?
These questions are addressed by a representative sample of Borletti-Buitoni Trust award and fellowship winners as they take their careers not only into new repertoire but new venues. See what ATOS Trio, Erik Bosgraaf, Alec Frank-Gemmill, Bram van Sambeek, Sean Shibe, Mark Simpson, Kate Whitley and others have to say.
