Young Artist Programme - Auditions for Singers
Waterperry Opera Festival is inviting singers of all voice types to join our Young Artist Programme in 2020. Our Young Artist Programme is a fully funded development programme for emerging performers and creatives looking to gain experience in opera.
The programme has been created to develop the skills and experience of emerging performers, offering a stepping-stone to further study or starting a career in opera. We specifically encourage applications from those who haven't, for any reason, had access to career opportunities or professional development. We are looking for candidates who will significantly benefit from the programme and the opportunities on offer. This is an unpaid, educational opportunity. There is no age restriction to apply.
Successful participants will receive training and development opportunities including:
If successful, you will be required to attend full time rehearsals in London from 13th July 2020. The culmination of which is an 8-day full-board residency at Waterperry, Oxford, in the Waterperry House, from 9th – 16th August 2020 during the festival.
Lessons, coachings and other one-off sessions will be scheduled in accordance to your schedule. There is some financial provision to support the travel expense and accessibility needs of successful candidates.
To apply, please send a CV and application form to Rebecca Meltzer at email@example.com. Auditions will take place in London on Sunday 23rd February 2020. The deadline for applications is 5pm on 10th February 2020.
