Samling Artist Programme Masterclass & Concert
Led by Caroline Dowdle, Anna Stéphany, Alex Hassell with staff pianist Somi Kim
Eight outstanding young singers and pianists work on song and opera repertoire in our public masterclass, led by Caroline Dowdle, pianist and vocal coach at the Royal Opera House and the Royal College of Music. Joining her on the team of leaders is mezzo-soprano Anna Stéphany who becomes the first Samling Artist Singer to return to the Samling Artist Programme as a leader, completing the cycle of growth and nurturing that is at the core of Samling’s values. Acclaimed actor Alex Hassell completes the team, sharing his insights into text, stagecraft and performance.
The masterclass is followed by a short concert, giving you the chance to see the future stars of classical music in action.
