The Young Artist Programme
Our newly expanded Young Artist Programme combines the best elements of our well-established Mastercourse and Young Artist Platform to offer an expanded range of high-quality opportunities for training and performance, and to enable more artists to benefit each year. The selected duos will be offered fully-subsidised places on our Mastercourse in October, as well other training opportunities during the year. They will also be offered a number of professional engagements at the Festival and with our partners nationally and internationally. This will culminate in the Young Artists curating and presenting Spring Song 2023.

The Levine Building
We are delighted to visit Trinity College’s brand new Levine Building across the Spring Song 2022. This stunning new concert and lecture hall has specially-designed acoustic panelling and a beautiful new Steinway Model B grand piano. There is also a lovely café on site that will be open during the day and accommodation options for audience members. Access to the Levine Building is via the Trinity College porters’ lodge on Broad Street, a stone’s throw from the Holywell Music Room. Click here to learn more.


It’s wonderful to be fully back in person, but we still want to ensure that audience, artists and our team feel safe. Please click here to view our latest COVID-19 policies. We will continuously review our safety measures as the situation progresses and government guidance changes. Do please check this page before your visit for the most up-to-date information.
