Samling Artist Programme November 2023

In November, we welcomed eight new Samling Artists to our global family, following a residency at Marchmont House led by soprano Yvonne Kenny AM, pianist Simon Lepper and actor Alex Hassell. The week ended with a public masterclass in which our audience heard insights into vocal technique, how pianists work with singers and the skills that actors use to bring text to life.

Our new Samling Artists are sopranos Madeline Boreham and Rachel McLean, mezzo-soprano Beth Moxon, tenor Steven van der Linden, baritones Sam Hird and Redmond Sanders and pianists Francesca Lauri and JongSun Woo.

“The Samling Artist Programme is an experience that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The combination between art at the highest level, the companionship between the participants and the leaders and the beautiful surroundings made the week truly exceptional.”
