RBC students dominate young artists’ programme

Young singers of Genesis Sixteen

Singers studying or about to study at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire will make up one-quarter of the intake of the prestigious Genesis Sixteen young artists’ programme this academic year.

The Sixteen is one of the UK’s leading vocal ensembles. The free programme is open to singers aged 18-23 years and aims to nurture the next generation of talented ensemble singers.

RBC’s six participants are Ella Blair, Harry Brookes-Owen, Marcus Burton, Daniel Marles, Matthew Pandya and Laura Toomey, who will be given the opportunity to perform in short courses and attend masterclasses delivered by industry professionals throughout the year. Read more about them here.

Head of Vocal and Operatic Studies Paul Wingfield said: “I am enormously proud of the students who have made successful applications to this highly competitive scheme.

“To have such a high representation from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire is testament to the talent we have on our doorstep and the way in which that talent is nurtured by our wonderful team of teachers here.”
