Anne & Françoise Groben Prize

In 2017, the Chamber Orchestra of Luxembourg created a prize for young instrumentalists and singers in memory of Anne and Françoise Groben. The purpose of this prize is to reward extraordinary artistic personality, and at the same time provide a launchpad for talented young people currently at or recently graduated from one of the music schools in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
The sisters Anne and Françoise Groben were very important figures in the Luxembourg musical scene, and were amongst the founder members of the Luxembourg Chamber Orchestra. Their premature deaths deeply shocked the cultural world. It is in their memory that the OCL created a prize intended for talented young people from Luxembourg music schools.
Presented for the first time in June 2017, the Anne and Françoise Groben Prize was awarded to the cellist Benjamin Kruithof, who is the soloist this season in the “Fun!” concert at the Luxembourg Philharmonie on 28 April 2024.
