Over the last few months a number of Future Talent Musicians have participated in two successful concerts at Eton College’s beautiful School Hall and the fantastic Hertford Theatre.
We are delighted to announce that we will be supporting over 50 young musicians as part of our 2017/18 Programme. We closed the application process in January and, after a difficult and lengthy shortlisting stage, were able to invite a select number of exceptionally gifted musicians to audition at the Royal Academy of Music in London and the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
The Trustees are seeking an experienced Executive Director to build on the Charity’s recent success and drive its continued growth. With vision, experience and energy, the new Executive Director will ensure the Charity becomes sustainable for the long term benefit of the young people it supports. Given the huge growth potential, this role is ideal for someone who is a social entrepreneur and wants to help grow Future Talent to deliver its charitable objectives.
If you would like an informal discussion about the Charity please contact Craig Titley, outgoing Chief Executive on 020 3457 1311 or email email@example.com.
To apply for the position, please send completed applications to Sheree-Marie Abraham at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Wednesday 26 April 2017.
Each musician played two contrasting pieces for a panel of four judges: Future Talent Patron and previous BBC Young Musician of the Year winner Guy Johnston, composer and clarinettist Mark Simpson, Artistic Director and Head of Brass at the Royal Academy of Music, Mark David, and ex-Future Talent Trustee Jessica Brennan, who also ran BBC Young Musician of the Year for 11 years.
On Sunday 23 October, the Future Talent Orchestra performed at the Clore Ballroom, Royal Festival Hall as part of the Southbank Centre’s WHY? Festival celebrating the rights of children and young people.
This was the third opportunity for current Future Talent musicians, as well as alumni, to come together for a day of intensive mentoring and performing. The Musicians spent the day rehearsing Terry Riley’s minimalist composition In C directed by Robert Ames, co-principal conductor and co-founder of the London Contemporary Orchestra.
