We start 2021 with a new feature – a regular round-up bringing you some of the big Samling Artist news stories and achievements that have caught our eye. This month brings news from the Kathleen Ferrier Awards and the Grammys, an acclaimed debut album and Samling Artists appearing in the Netflix blockbuster ‘Bridgerton’.
Samling Institute has grown from a concert in a barn to a global family of more than five-hundred singers, pianists and leaders. In the cover story of our Spring Newsletter for 2021, we look back at Samling Institute’s journey to becoming an organisation of national and international significance, and we share some of our exciting plans for this special year.
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.
