Applications are open for the BYAP 2018 Courses

it's time to apply!


The Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme was founded over 40 years ago by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears to provide high-level performance training for the world’s best emerging professional musicians. Residential projects and masterclasses take place throughout the year in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk Coast where Britten lived and worked. Participants benefit from an exceptional campus of performance spaces and studios, which has grown around the iconic Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home of the Aldeburgh Festival. The BPYAP hosts some of the premier performers and teachers who lead intensive projects, which culminate in high profile performances.

The 2018 Courses are now open to applications! They include workshops on singing Handel's Teodora, on Classical Song, on orchestral conducting...led by renowned artists such as Sarah Connolly, Anne Sofie von Otter, Marin Alsop, Roger Vignoles, among others. 


The applications close at 1600 GMT Monday 6 November 2017 (with the exception of Chamber Music in Residence which closes Monday 15 January 2018).


All information on the 2018 courses is now available on Snape Maltings' website, along with audition requirements, excerpts and tips on how to make a great audition video.
