Mascarade Emerging Artists will run from 5 September 2022 to 30 June 2024. The programme offers tuition-funded places to five singers and one répétiteur over a two-year period. Successful applicants are additionally offered paid accommodation and maintenance grants, meaning they do not need to raise or generate the funds required to pay for their living costs for the duration of the programme.
We will be using YAP Tracker for our Mascarade Emerging Artists applications this year.
