Vox Next Gen applications 24/25

In person auditions will be held during the week of 8th April 2024, for the 2024/25 Vox Next Gen young artists.

 

In the first instance, please send us your CV and a short video / voice recording of a recent performance – this does not need to be a professional recording, one recorded on a phone is fine.

 

In addition to this, please let us know why you feel that the Vox Urbane mission speaks to you as a young artist.

You can submit your applications here.

DEADLINE 15TH MARCH 2024

 

If you are shortlisted for an in-person audition, you will be required to sing two pieces: one item selected from the appropriate voice-part of the repertoire lists below. The second can be a piece of your own choice, or a second piece from the lists below. Please try to demonstrate that you are able to sing music from more than one historical period. There will also be a short passage of choral music provided in the audition for quick study.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions.
