Application process opens for this year’s Young Conductors Programme

We’re delighted to announce that we are offering four Young Conducting scholarships for the 2017-18 academic year, thanks to funding from various sources.

The four places have been made possible through awards from charitable trusts and foundations (including the Sylvia Waddilove Foundation, which has funded a full scholarship place for the year), the generosity of members, course attendees and concertgoers who have donated via our various fundraising activities and a decision by Sing for Pleasure’s Trustees to allocate reserves towards a scholarship.

We’re now inviting applications from exceptionally talented 18-25 year old musicians who have their heart set on a choral conducting career, but who lack the financial means to access the specialist training required to further their aims.

Full details and our online application form can be found here for those interested in being considered.

Deadline for applications to be received is midnight on Saturday 7 October.
