Alumni Overview

Any artist who experiences Aldeburgh is unlikely to forget its particular magic, the unique atmosphere of freedom and concentrated music making.

Alumni of the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme (formerly known as the Britten–Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies), Hesse Student alumni and Aldeburgh Festival alumni are warmly invited to get back in touch with us – and with one another – again.

You will receive an e-newsletter quarterly with information about what is going on, alumni profiles, events, courses, performances and future plans. It gives you the chance to find out what your friends and colleagues have been up to after all this time. Please use the email sign-up link, at the top of the page.

Even if you have not pursued music as a career please submit your news to me at and have a glance through the Gallery to see your old colleagues and friends in some very questionable fashion styles!
