An important part of the Festival’s mission is to nurture emerging talent on the British classical music scene. This concert will be a showcase for the youngest members of the 2019 Festival’s professional ensemble of singers and players. The instrumentalists will be some of the most talented players at the UK’s leading conservatoires who are part of the Festival’s Performer Development programme.
Similarly the young professional singers are graduates of The Sixteen’s Genesis programme: the opportunity to sing alongside some of the UK’s most experienced consort singers is an extension of that training and the result of a joint initiative by our Patron Harry Christophers and Marcus Farnsworth.
Programme to include:
Antonín Dvořák String Quartet No. 12 in F major, Op. 96 The American Quartet
A range of music for vocal quartet
