This fellowship aims to support visionaries. Are you an emerging young innovator who will help bring about positive, ground-breaking change to the classical music industry? Are you striving to stay innovative within an existing organisation? Do you want to set up something completely new?
You can apply if…
...you are from Germany or the UK, and currently studying or working in the classical music or cultural sector. This includes (but is not limited to):
We will not make decisions based on personal background, ethnicity or gender. We simply want to identify individuals whose work and vision excite us, and whose ideas compel us to support and help implement.

"We chose Ben Corrigan as this year's winner because his podcast has an innovative and cogent approach to the realities and difficulties of the classical music market today. It is entertaining, intellectually demanding and whets the appetite for classical and contemporary music. I am very pleased to work alongside his project in the coming year."
Carolin Denz - Director, Noted Fellowship
Ben Corrigan’s podcast is unique in the classical music market. Not only does he invite composers to talk about their new works and discuss their opinions on the classical music industry, but he joins them in composing a completely new piece of music “off the cuff” at the end of each episode.
Every aspect of the project is professionally executed by Corrigan himself - from the conceptual design of each individual podcast, right down to the recording, production and more technical elements. He has already released the first series of the podcast and will soon be revealing some shorter bonus episodes, titled ‘Extra Mess'. Corrigan’s goal is to publish an album featuring the compositions created on-air in 2018, before starting the next big round of recording for series 2 in 2019!
With the support, help and input of selected mentors from Noted Fellowship, Corrigan will further develop his content and structure for both his podcast and album. Furthermore, he will receive €5,000 in financial support from Noted.
