Singers' Platform

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

FlyerThis is an initiative in the David Clover Festival of Singing and is intended to provide the opportunity to post ‘A’ level singers studying at universities and conservatoires, and those having private tuition, to continue the development of their art with substantial award money. Winners from past Festivals have been offered paid engagements with choirs in Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Eligibility to this section of the David Clover Festival of Singing is for Soprano, Mezzo-soprano and Contralto voices under 30 years and Counter tenor/Male Alto, Tenor, Baritone, Bass-baritone and Bass voices under 32 years at 27 January 2022. Entrants in the Singers’ Platform are eligible for classes in this part of the Festival only.

Singers will receive specific details of timetable, procedures etc after the final date of the receipt of the Entry Form: 20 November 2021. Late entries will only be accepted in exceptional circumstances. Those singers who are post conservatoire/university and who have already crossed the threshold of the music profession and are earning a significant portion of their income from operatic principal, chorus or concert contracts are ineligible to participate in the Singers’ Platform. There is a new award for singers under 22 years - see details under Awards.
