Monteverdi Apprentices Programme

"Our apprentices have proved to be a magnificent addition to the Monteverdi ensembles since we established the pioneering scheme in 2007. In short, a Monteverdi Apprenticeship provides an holistic and comprehensive programme offering the very best young musicians a bridge between university, conservatoire and the professional work."
Sir John Eliot Gardiner
About the Apprentices Programme
The aim of the Apprentices Programme is to recruit the most promising young performers – those on the verge of entering the profession – and introduce them to the musical tradition of the Monteverdi Choir and the working practices of Sir John Eliot Gardiner by way of a year-long apprenticeship, involving participation in the Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique projects, as well as additional mentoring and coaching sessions with the Monteverdi musical staff.
