Singers from The Sixteen's young artist training programme Genesis Sixteen present their final showcase.

Genesis Sixteen, now in its 13th year, remains a unique and pioneering training programme for the next generation of talented ensemble singers. In addition to high quality vocal training from conductor Harry Christophers and associate conductor Eamonn Dougan, and individual mentoring and one-per-part consort training with members of The Sixteen, participants also receive specialist training in vocal anatomy, nutrition for singers, business and performance skills from some of the industry’s top experts.

In 2014 we expanded the scheme by developing an annual conducting scholarship. Throughout the year our current scholar Charlie Perry has received mentoring by Harry and Eamonn, and has conducted the choir in a number of public performances.

In culmination of their year’s training, the singers have been working hard with conductors Harry and Eamonn all week to learn and perfect an array of new repertoire, and during this concert they present their favourite pieces from the course. Each piece will be announced beforehand.

This performance is part of Sounds Sublime Choral Festival, a special annual event curated by The Sixteen, showcasing the passion, joy and diversity of the human voice. This year’s festival celebrates the journey of young voices, from under 5’s and their very first experiences of singing, to the extraordinary talent and passion of our current Genesis Sixteen choir.
