Carmel was the recipient of the 2019 Christopher Brooks prize from the Liverpool Philharmonic. She spent a year being mentored, advised and supported by a range of people in the Philharmonic. From individual workshops with players to practical professional advice form the programming team, it was an invaluable experience and any young composer based in the North should definitely apply. 

As part of the prize she wrote a piece for Ensemble 10/10. Extracts from the score are shown on this page.
