    Situation

    The choral sector needs more young professionals from a wider range of backgrounds. The first years as a freelancer are financially difficult. Prospective singers, especially from low-income families, are lost to the profession. Singers graduating from university rarely have the choral skills and musicianship to compete with established professionals and with those few who had a choral education as children. Many groups are under-represented with few role models to inspire the next generation.

    Solution

    Our Graduate Scholars programme will nurture new talent through amazing opportunities & financial support, bridging the student-to-professional gap, launching many singers from diverse backgrounds into the profession. Building on our award-winning www.SingingSchools.co.uk work with children, our Scholars will be ambassadors for singing: demystifying the training journey and providing a look behind the scenes of their budding careers, inspiring ALL talented young singers to reach their potential!
