Supporting the next generation of musicians with Brighton Early Music Festival

We’re delighted to announce a partnership with Brighton Early Music Festival for the newly expanded Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists scheme to bring wider opportunities to brilliant young musicians.

The Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists scheme (PDGYA) recognises some of the UK’s top young musical talents and provides Making Music groups with an affordable way of booking artists. 

Making Music are thrilled to be partnering with Brighton Early Music Festival (BREMF) for the extension of the PDGYA scheme. BREMF has been bringing vibrant performances and art to the musical landscape of Brighton and Hove since 2002. Its young artist scheme, BREMF Live! mentors five young ensembles each year, offering them coaching, training and ensemble development. This partnership will bring further performance and collaborative opportunities to some of the brightest musicians at the start of their careers. 

Cathy Boyes, festival producer at BREMF, said:  

‘We’re really excited about this collaboration which will help us to evolve our offer to the young artists we support each year. We encourage them to make the most of this brilliant opportunity and to advocate for the work that both BREMF and Making Music are doing to support and develop young artists.’  

The PDGYA scheme, in partnership with Royal Over-Seas League and Brighton Early Music Festival, is available thanks to funding from the Phillip and Dorothy Green Music Trust, a legacy of composer Phillip Green which supports the development of young musicians and composers.
