PROVIDING YOUNG PROFESSIONALS WITH PERFORMANCE OPPORTUNITY Ludus Baroque each year aims to engage the very best young professional vocal soloists, choral singers and musicians. Many of these young professionals require a range of engagements and exposure to repertoire to assist in their development. Ludus Baroque now records a programme per year on the prestigious Delphian label, based in Edinburgh, there by giving all the performers a "calling card" to assist with future engagements.


SELECT PERFORMANCE AND RECORDING PROJECTS Conductor Richard Neville-Towle and past soloists help to identify the ambitious and young talented soloists for the annual programme. Will Dawes, Chorus Leader, scouts out the best young choral singers from the UK and invites them to be part of the concerts. Oliver Webber, a first rank baroque freelance musician, selects the very best musicians to perform.
