Jerwood Young Artists Programme

Founded in 1934 by John Christie and his opera singer wife, Audrey Mildmay, Glyndebourne has become recognised globally as one of the great opera houses. The Glyndebourne Festival has expanded to a season of over 75 performances between mid-May and the end of August covering a repertory of six operas.

Glyndebourne’s Jerwood Young Artist Programme offers aspiring soloists from the Glyndebourne Chorus career-changing support and professional development over a full Glyndebourne Festival season.

Through the Jerwood Young Artist Programme singers with exceptional potential receive coaching from the very best professionals around the world and are given the opportunity to develop a solo role for one of the Festival operas, either through understudying or by performing a solo role. The programme has acted as a crucial catalyst for the development of aspiring soloists, many of whom are now performing regularly in opera houses throughout the UK and, in several cases, internationally.

The Jerwood Young Artists for 2022 are: Charlotte Bowden, Soprano; Patrick Alexander Keefe, Baritone; Cleo Lee-McGowan, Soprano and Jack Sandison, Bass Baritone.
