New Talent Showcase
A new Home Concert Club Event
8pm Sunday 20 December
We want to showcase the talent of the professional musicians of the future – newly qualified musicians, for whom lockdown has been particularly challenging as they set out on their careers.
On Sunday 20 December at 8 pm we will have a special online concert to introduce five musicians who left conservatoires in the summer of 2020, having completed Masters level qualifications in performance studies.
Each musician will perform for 10 minutes.
We will pay a fee of £100 to each of the five performers.
(Note: There will be no extra fee for accompanists, so the selected performers will need to decide whether to play unaccompanied pieces, play with a backing track or split the fee with an accompanist of their choice.)
Applying to perform
We invite musicians to apply to perform at this concert. Send a short CV (no more than 1 side of A4) to email@example.com, with the words ‘NEW TALENT SHOWCASE APPLICATION’ in the subject line.
(Please only apply if you meet our criterion of having graduated with a Masters in performance studies in summer 2020).
We especially welcome applications from musicians of diverse backgrounds and those for whom supporting themselves through their musical education has been particularly challenging. Please state on your CV if you think this applies to you and explain why.
Closing date for applications: November 1 2020.
Date by which we’ll contact shortlisted performers: November 8 2020
Final selection: November 15 2020
