Do you love communicating words through song? Are you intrigued by the unique relationship between singer and pianist? We are inviting 10 duos to become Leeds Lieder Young Artists and immerse themselves in our 2018 Festival.
There will be opportunities to work closely with either John Mark Ainsley, Malcolm Martineau or Sir Thomas Allen, who will share their experiences of working on the international stage and explore the special ensemble relationship of voice and piano. The Leeds Lieder Young Artists will also take part in a live-streamed concert, with further opportunities to perform in the late night Lieder Lounge, and will receive free tickets to all Festival events featuring artists such as Louise Alder, Carolyn Sampson, Matthew Rose, Robert Holl, Graham Johnson and Julian Prégardien.
At a cost of £200 per participant, this is a valuable opportunity for established or emerging duos to work together alongside professionals and like-minded musicians. For the first time, Leeds Lieder Young Artists may also be invited to take part in future Leeds Lieder Concert Seasons, alongside an already established tradition of Ferrier and Wigmore International Song Competition Prize Winners and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists.
Applications are invited from singer and pianist duos aged 30 years of age or under by Thurday 1 Feb 2018. Please see the Leeds Lieder Young Artists Application Form for further guidance.
