Singers' Platform

The object is not to defeat a rival, but to pace each other on the road to excellence
H. Walford Davies

This is an initiative in the David Clover Festival of Singing and is intended to give the opportunity to singers already studying at universities and conservatoires, to postgraduates, and to those being privately tutored, to continue the development of their art with substantial award money. Winners in the past have been offered paid engagements with choirs in Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Eligibility to this section of the David Clover Festival is for singers between the ages of 19 and 28 at 24 January 2020. Entrants in the Singers’ Platform are eligible for classes in this part of the Festival only. Performers will receive specific details of the timetable, procedures, etc., after the final date of the receipt of the Entry Form. Winners of classes from 2019 are not eligible to enter the same class in 2020.
