Each of the 33 musicians on our annual fellowship brings with them unique skills and experience, and it is an honour for my colleagues and me to be able to guide them through their year with us, unlocking potential, and preparing them as best we can for healthy, fulfilling and long-term careers.
We are proud to nurture future leaders who are confident and capable of performing a diverse range of repertoire with flair, and can boldly step outside the conventional orchestral concert format to engage with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. By virtue of their youthful vitality, our players are the perfect fit to act as inspirational role models for the next generation of young musicians.
Much of our Artist Development programme takes place behind the scenes, but as we expand this core aspect of our Fellowship, it’s time to draw wider attention to our holistic approach. This is the 2019 Music Director’s Appeal.
