Education and Outreach

Alongside our performance and project work, Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras is committed to providing opportunitites for professional development and education.

We are passionately dedicated to nurturing future musical generations and sharing our specialist knowledge with emerging talent. This has been an integral part of our work for over five decades, and remains a constant priority alongside our primary concert and recording activity.

Our Monteverdi Apprentice Programme enables outstanding young musicians to spend an entire year training and performing with our three world-class ensembles, under the direction of Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Participants perform and tour with the ensembles, take part in additional individual and group coaching sessions, and receive mentoring from our experienced musicians.

In our management office, the Arts Management Training Programme offers graduates looking to build careers in arts administration a bridge between university and the professional world, in an innovative and supportive environment.

It is our long-term ambition to expand our education and outreach work even further as we seek to inspire future generations of music-makers by sharing our world-class knowledge and expertise.
