The Award goes to the Switzerland-based Orion String Trio, with South Korean violinist Soyoung Yoon, German violist Veit Hertenstein and British cellist Benjamin Gregor-Smith. Their friendship and deep mutual musical understanding inspired them to form the Orion String Trio in Basel while continuing to pursue their individual solo careers.

The Swiss Ambassador’s Award Concert is an annual showcase of talented musicians with a classical and contemporary repertoire. The concert is organised in cooperation with the Swiss Cultural Fund UK - a charity promoting Swiss artistic excellence in the UK -, and with the support of Pro Helvetia (Arts Council of Switzerland), Migros Culture Percentage talent promotion, Presence Switzerland and Julius Baer International.
