Ten young singers from Sussex and Surrey have been selected as Glyndebourne Junior Artists.
The Glyndebourne Junior Artist scheme is for talented singers aged between 14 and 19 who live locally to Glyndebourne. It is led by Glyndebourne's Talent Consultant Mary King, who has appeared in concerts and operas all over the world and enjoys a high-profile career as a vocal coach.
Throughout the new academic year the group will receive specialist training and be given the opportunity to attend rehearsals and meet singers involved in Glyndebourne productions, giving them insight into the world of a professional opera singer. The young people will also act as ambassadors for opera and singing in their schools or colleges. They had their first session at Glyndebourne this month (9 September).
Several of the Junior Artists are members of Glyndebourne Youth Opera which provides local young people with world-class performance opportunities and engaging opera workshops open to all.
