Oxford Lieder's new 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. Between six and eight exceptional duos will be selected by public audition at our Spring Song Weekend in March 2022.
Applications are now open close on February 1st, further details are available here.
Lead tutor for the 2022 Young Artist Programme is Mark Padmore. Born in London, Mark studied at King’s College, Cambridge, and has since established an international career in opera, concert and recital. His appearances in Bach Passions have gained particular notice, especially his renowned performances as Evangelist in the St Matthew and St John Passions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Simon Rattle, staged by Peter Sellars.
