Monteverdi Apprentices Programme 18/19

​From 30 April we will be accepting applications from singers to join our 18/19 Apprentices Programme. The aim of the Monteverdi Apprentices Programme is to recruit the most promising young performers – those on the verge of entering the profession – and introduce them to the musical tradition of the Monteverdi Choir and the working practices of Sir John Eliot Gardiner by way of a year-long apprenticeship, involving participation in projects with the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, as well as additional workshops and coaching sessions with mentors from the Monteverdi ensembles. The Monteverdi Apprentices Programme is free of charge to all participants.

The Monteverdi Choir will appoint up to eight choral Apprentices for the 2018-19, who will be invited to take part in several projects with the Monteverdi Choir, EBS and ORR. They will be asked to perform concerts in the United Kingdom and on tour in Europe and to attend all associated rehearsals, as well as dedicated workshops and coaching sessions tailored to their musical aims and ambitions.
