Bridging the gap between conservatoires and professional life, the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme offers unique development and performance opportunities in the inspiring setting of the east coast of England. By forming an integral part of the international Aldeburgh Festival and a year-round programme of concerts and events, the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme has launched many international artists' careers.
There are also opportunities for emerging young professional musicians to work with leading conductors, soloists and orchestral principals in both the Britten–Pears Orchestra and the Britten–Pears Baroque Ensemble.
Faster than Sound is a groundbreaking strand of programming that joins the dots between musical genres and digital art forms. Giving artists the rare chance to have time and space to develop new work, Faster than Sound places a strong emphasis on emerging technologies and original ideas.
Faster than Sound is produced by Aldeburgh Music, and continues a long tradition at Aldeburgh of giving artists the opportunity to experiment and work in new ways.
