Jerwood Young Artist Marvic Monreal will perform in Salzburg alongside two world superstars

17 May 2017

2016 Jerwood Young Artist, mezzo soprano Marvic Monreal will perform alongside two superstars on a world stage: tenor Placido Domingo and her mentor, Joseph Calleja at the famous Salzburg Festival.

The UK-based singer won a place on a programme for up-and-coming artists, which involves participation in a series of intense masterclasses held in Salzburg over the summer.

As part of the Jerwood Chorus Development Scheme each year, Glyndebourne identifies three promising future soloists from the chorus to become the Jerwood Young Artists. They receive additional performance and training opportunities each year. With the assistance of Steven Naylor, Director of Artistic Administration, each Jerwood Young Artist creates a bespoke programme tailored to their development needs. This typically includes: a small role and an understudy role on a main Glyndebourne Festival production;vocal and language coaching; mentoring with selected principal singers; repertoire and career advice; and stagecraft training with assistant directors.
