Samling Academy will look rather different this year, but one thing that hasn’t changed is that thirty young singers in the North East will still receive six intensive days of training in a wide range of singing and performance skills. Read all about our plans in the cover story for our autumn 2020 newsletter.
We continue our video series in which Samling Artists reflect on different aspects of what the Samling Artist Programme has meant to them. In this film, Samling Artist baritone Morgan Pearse talks about the process of discovery that comes from working alongside other artists.
Our office may be empty, but we have been working harder than ever during the lock-down. We have not furloughed staff and our small team have switched seamlessly to working from home to ensure that Samling Institute’s work supporting brilliant young artists continues unabated.
We are very sorry to announce that in light of the ongoing effect of coronavirus – and specifically the uncertainty it has brought to venues, festivals and other performance-based organisations up and down the UK – we have decided to postpone this year’s Samling Academy Opera production of Mansfield Park.
We begin a new decade with rehearsals for a twenty-first century opera by one of this country’s most exciting composers. Announcing the return of Samling Academy Opera this summer, we’ve chosen Jonathan Dove’s sparkling chamber opera adaptation of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park.
