Glyndebourne awarded £50,000 grant for Jerwood Young Artists Programme
The grant will fund the Jerwood Young Artists Programme in 2020 and 2021.
The Development Programme Fund grant will help provide career-changing support and professional development for talented, aspiring soloists. Each year the Glyndebourne Jerwood Young Artist Programme will provide opportunities for four highly gifted singers to receive top class professional coaching and development training from renowned artists, directors and coaches to equip them for an international career on the opera stage.
‘We are delighted to be supporting the Jerwood Young Artist Programme for 2020 and 2021’ says Lilli Geissendorfer, Director of Jerwood Arts, ‘Glyndebourne’s expertise and dedication to developing the next generation of outstanding voices is inspiring, and the total immersion in their Summer Season a singular opportunity for the selected artists.’
Jerwood Arts is the leading independent funder dedicated to supporting UK artists, curators and producers to develop and thrive. We enable transformative opportunities for individuals across art forms, supporting imaginative awards, fellowships, programmes, commissions and collaborations. We present new work and bring people from across the arts together in the galleries at Jerwood Space, London, as well as across the UK. www.jerwoodarts.org
