Keep an Eye Outstanding Talent Award
Keep an Eye Foundation has supported Jong Metropole for several years. The Keep an Eye Outstanding Talent Award is a prize for the most exceptional talent from Jong Metropole. It recognises the most inventive person, occupying an exceptional place within the group. The winner is therefore not necessarily the best soloist or the best musician, but can also be "outstanding" in another field!
The musician receiving this award will be given the possibility to study at the place of his or her choice or to follow one or more masterclasses. He or she will therefore receive a tailored prize package.
Trumpet player Bram van de Glind won the Keep an Eye Outstanding Talent 2019. He received the prize during the live cast of the Jong Metropole concert on 13 March 2020 at the Metropole Orkest studio in Hilversum. He received the award as the best "connector" in the group. Congratulations Bram! It was an honour to work with you.
