A moment for the inaugural VOICEBOX cohort to share some of the trailblazing work they have been doing behind closed doors at Snape Maltings over the first instalment of this year-long programme led by Juliet Fraser.

VOICEBOX is a brand-new initiative offering a bespoke curriculum for advanced singers specialising in contemporary vocal performance. It is delivered over the course of a year, broken into four intensive residency periods that are hosted by partner organisations around the UK, the first of which is hosted by Britten Pears Arts at Snape Maltings as part of the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme. There are six emerging artists participating in this ground-breaking programme, comprising a diverse range of the most exciting contemporary vocalists from across the UK and Europe.

VOICEBOX provides a unique space for creative development, risk-taking, community-building and professional networking. For the year together the cohort becomes a community: creating a space for exploring new ways of singing and new ways of thinking about their work.

The Britten Pears Young Artist Programme is made possible with the generous support of our Trust & Foundations and Individual supporters.
