Riverstone supports the Glyndebourne Cover Artists programme.

Riverstone offers the very best in London living to people over 65.

With locations in Kensington and Fulham, their mission is to create something better than conventional options, with stunning apartments and incredible facilities within a vibrant community.

Through their support for the Glyndebourne Cover Artists programme Riverstone are helping to nurture talented artists at early stages of their career.

During the Festival, Glyndebourne’s cover artists receive five weeks of intensive coaching from the same staff directors, music and language coaches who are working with the principals on the Festival production. This unusually long period of preparation brings them to the level required should they have to take over the role at a performance. Glyndebourne views the time spent on this preparation not only as an insurance policy but also as an investment in the training of young singers.

Shannan Hodgson, from Riverstone says ‘we are all about exceptional experiences and are committed to connect people with their passions. Arts and culture are important to many of our residents, who have a long appreciation as part of their everyday lives. Partnering with Glyndebourne to support the Cover Artist Programme offers an exciting opportunity to embrace this and work with a brand that aligns our mutual belief of investing and planning for the future as well as indulging our passions.’

‘We’ve opened Riverstone Fulham and Riverstone Kensington, our first two locations from a portfolio we’re planning across London, encompassing beautiful homes for sale, accompanied by extraordinary amenities and services. Our residents live full, independent lives, surrounded by a warm and friendly community, in the place they love, with health and wellbeing at the heart. Our residences are located in some of London’s leading cultural hotspots. You don’t have to travel far to discover a brand-new passion or indulge in your favourite hobby’ – Alicia Corney-Loates, Partnership Manager at Riverstone.
