Eye to Eye

Singers sought for a new choral work as part of Brighton Festival

Brighton Festival and Glyndebourne are bringing together an intergenerational chorus of women and children to perform the world premiere of a new choral work about motherhood and childhood at Brighton Festival in May 2019 conducted by Sian Edwards.

We are in the process of recruiting singers to bring this piece to life and will be auditioning in the following age brackets:

  • Glyndebourne Youth Opera 1 (aged 9-13)
  • Adult female voices (aged 21 or over)

Family groups are encouraged to apply as this work is an exploration of the relationship between mothers (of any age) and their children and grandchildren.

You must live within 25 miles radius of Glyndebourne to apply.

How to Take Part

Auditions will take place on Sunday 30 September at Glyndebourne. You will audition in small groups and are not expected to prepare any material in advance, although you will be asked to sing briefly on your own at some point during the audition.

Applications for auditions are now closed.
