A selection of photos from our Glyndebourne Academy workshop


Glyndebourne Academy is for young singers interested in pursuing classical singing who have faced challenges in their musical development, Whether this is due to challenging personal circumstances, geographical or financial barriers or other factors. Each year we recruit gifted and talented young singers aged between 16 – 26 to receive intensive training, mentorship, advice and guidance on future development and career pathways.
