About us

Talent development

We’re passionate about supporting the next generation of singers instrumentalists and composers.

At Glyndebourne, we are dedicated to encouraging gifted artists at every stage of their career.
Spotting and supporting burgeoning talent has historically been an integral aim of our work, and remains a focus today.

The list of alumni from our chorus is long and distinguished, including Dame Janet Baker, Gerald Finley and Sarah Connolly. Our Tour serves as a springboard for emerging artists to launch their careers, and many singers also gain valuable experience as cover artists in both the Festival and the Tour.

Glyndebourne has always commissioned new work, including from Jonathan Dove, Julian Philips, David Bruce and in recent years from young composers Luke Styles and Lewis Murphy.
