Festival Recitals

This could be your chance to have a professional debut recital in London!


Recitals will be available for wonderful venues in London and will be open to the public. They will be fully ticketed events and will offer the emerging artists the opportunity to demonstrate their skills for an appreciative audience. The repertoire will be chosen by the performer and is not limited to bel canto, but should be chosen according to the individual's voice from the greater song and performance repertoire. Recitals are very personal and should represent the individual performers as well as inform the audience about your chosen repertoire. You will be required to list your proposed recital repertoire for the application.

Master Classes

As part of the academy, there will be both public and private masterclasses. The public master classes will take place during the festival itself and will occur alongside the recitals. While it may not be advantageous for a singer to take part in a master class the day of their recital, they may be chosen to take part in one on an alternate date if they wish. Master classes will be given by Maestro David Pary, world-renowned soprano Nelly Miricioiu, bel canto specialist tenor Bruce Ford, and the general director of the festival K E Querns Langley.
