To be a classical singer is straightforward: all you need is the strength of an athlete, a top actor’s timing, a dancer’s grace, impeccable foreign languages – oh, and flawless control of your voice. The culmination of the latest Samling Artist Programme, this Masterclass and Concert event takes you behind the scenes to show how classical stars are born. Eight young professionals are put through their paces by world-class artists, before showing in concert how they’ve learned from the masters.

Tickets: £15 (for both masterclass and concert)/ concessions £13 / students £5
