WHAT TO WATCH: Scottish Opera present emerging artists recital online

Scottish Opera presents an online recital showcasing the talented group of Emerging Artists from the 2019/20 Season.

This Season marked the 10-year anniversary since the programme began in 2009 and will conclude with singers Charlie Drummond, Arthur Bruce, Mark Nathan, and Associate Artist Heather Ireson performing a recital live on YouTube, which will be available for all to watch.

Presented by Director, Roxana Haines and accompanied by Scottish Opera’s Head of Music Derek Clark, the four young singers will entertain with a short, light hearted programme of operatic highlights.

The Emerging Artists programme offers young artists a period of full-time work with the Company to help them launch their careers. Initially set up to nurture outstanding young singers, the programme now also includes positions for a repetiteur, costume trainee, a composer in residence, and, during Season19/20 for the first time, an Associate Producer.

Previous Emerging Artists include soprano Jennifer France, tenor Elgan LlŇ∑r Thomas, baritone Ben McAteer, repetiteur Jonathon Swinard, and composers Gareth Williams and Lliam Paterson.

The recital will be available to watch on our website here: https://www.scottishopera.org.uk/shows/emerging-artist-recital/
