Old Citizen, Harry Bradford awarded Genesis Sixteen Conducting Scholarship


19 June 2018
Old Citizen, Harry Bradford, has been awarded the Genesis Sixteen Conducting Scholarship.

Genesis Sixteen is The Sixteen’s training programme that nurtures the next generation of talented young voices and specifically bridges the gap from student to professional practitioner. 

The Conducting Scholarship is fully funded and currently offers young conductors between the ages of 21-26, the opportunity to be mentored by founder and conductor Harry Christophers CBE and associate conductor Eamonn Dougann, as well as the chance to work with some of the best young ensemble singers in the country. The Scholar is given the chance to observe each course, sing with the choir, lead their own rehearsals and conduct several pieces in concert.

Harry is currently studying Choral Directions as a Post Graduate at the Royal Academy of Music after graduating from Cambridge, where he was a choral scholar at King's. We wish Harry the best of luck in this new endeavour and hope that he might return to City to share his expertise.
