Young Conductors Programme 2018-19: scholarship applications now invited

Funding secured from various sources enables us to offer five scholarship places this year on our acclaimed training programme for aspiring young would-be choral conductors – and the application process is now open.
We’re looking for exceptionally talented young musicians aged 18-25, who are passionate about embarking on a choral conducting career but whose financial circumstances prevent them from accessing the specialist training they need to be as effective as possible in this field.

Successful candidates will benefit from fully funded group training and personalised mentoring throughout the academic year, and will also enjoy access to SfP’s wide network of professional musicians both during their scholarship and after it draws to a close.

Applications must be submitted by midnight on Monday 1 October 2018, and more details – including our online application form – can be found on our Young Conductors Programme page.
