Take a look at the 2014 Britten–Pears Young Artist programme brochure.


What our past alumni say:

‘I have never been anywhere else where I have learnt so much in so short a time and have come away refreshed and itching to make music.’

‘The BPP is a great opportunity to work with top musicians in a friendly and supportive environment. ... The genuine love of music embedded in everyone here is truly inspirational and reminds us why we want to be musicians.’

‘Britten–Pears is a very positive experience. From the stunning location to the excellent tuition it is an opportunity young musicians should not miss out on.’

‘The Programme is a great symposium where composers, performers and tutors can work closely together in an inspirational environment.’
