Launched in 2015, the NYCGB Fellowship Programme aims to create the most highly skilled and multi-talented choral singers in the UK. Each year, eight singers aged 22-25 selected following an intensive three round audition process benefit from a comprehensive 50-day professional training programme designed to develop outstanding skills in performance, education and leadership.
Fellowship singers have performed at the Royal Albert Hall, Snape Maltings, on tour in Malta and China and live on BBC Radio 3, delivered educational work in Nottinghamshire, Durham and Suffolk, and received masterclasses and seminars from Harry Christophers, Kitty Whately, James Gilchrist and Sam Evans, and professional seminars on personal finance, marketing and developing ensembles.
Fellowship holders are supported by individual bursary awards of £4,000 plus expenses, with the possibility of additional fees for engagements throughout the year.
