Christmas Concert auditions

For singers aged 9-13

An exciting opportunity for young singers aged 9–13 to be part of our magical Christmas Concerts and sing alongside the Glyndebourne Chorus and Glyndebourne Sinfonia this December.

Auditions will be on Saturday 22 June at Glyndebourne, and the application deadline is Monday 10 June. We will let applicants know by Friday 14 June if they have been offered an audition, and we will do our best to accommodate all who apply and are eligible.

The auditions are designed to be relaxed and enjoyable, involving some games and warm ups, followed by learning some short songs and singing in groups. The auditions will be in group sessions, lasting around two hours. There will be the opportunity for solo singing if the participants feel comfortable with this.
