Early Music Live! 2017

About Early Music Live!

Early Music Live! is much more than a performance opportunity. Participants are supported throughout the year with advice, mentoring and training opportunities, as well as the chance to become involved in other festival projects. We invite promoters to hear the performances in Brighton as well as filming performances for digital upload.

The 2019/20 scheme will run from May 2019 to March 2020 with performance opportunities in the 2019 Brighton Early Music Festival. Details of how to apply will be posted here in early 2019.

Guidelines for applicants

  • Early Music Live! is open to early music ensembles, and to singers who would like to be part of our opera and oratorio projects.
  • The size of ensemble is limited to generally 2 - 6 musicians with an early music specialism (from medieval to classical), including vocal and mixed ensembles.
  • We don’t specify an age range but the scheme is for young musicians at the early stages of a professional career. Generally we would expect most participants to be either final year or postgraduate students, or to have graduated within the last three years.
  • There are many opportunities to get involved throughout the year, so for this reason Early Music Live! is most suitable for participants who are based primarily in the UK.
