SongEasel

SongEasel was established in 2018 to fill South East London with song. Each series holds diversity and inclusivity at the heart of its mission, in harmony with showcasing exceptional musical quality at an international standard.

SongEasel Young Artists

Building on the success of our 2021 Young Artists Programme launch at the 1901 Arts Club in Waterloo with Dr Emily Kilpatrick, we have expanded our programme to include a wider range of opportunities for young song duos in 2022. These include:

MASTERCLASS PROGRAMME at St Laurence Church, Catford with

  • distinguished French bass-baritone Laurent Naouri in April 2022
  • renowned Irish soprano Ailish Tynan on 5th June 2022 from 12noon. Click here to see the full programme.

PERFORMANCE PLATFORM 

A professional performance platform engaging with Lewisham’s elderly residents, and a recital in the Oxford Proms 2022 on August 10th. 

The masterclasses are free to attend, and a retiring collection will be taken for the work of SongEasel.

 

Applications are now closed and will reopen for our 2023 programme towards the end of 2022. Please sign up for our mailing list to receive updates.
