Jerwood Young Artists

Since 2005 Glyndebourne has increased its investment in developing young talent with the inauguration of the Jerwood Chorus Development Scheme.

This programme aims to provide training opportunities for the aspiring soloists in the Glyndebourne Chorus.

The singers work with leading conductors, directors, choreographers, theatre specialists and vocal coaches to enhance their skills and experience.

The scheme has been made possible through the generosity of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
