Hallé/RNCM String Leadership Training Scheme
Applicants are invited to audition for the Hallé/RNCM String Leadership Training Scheme.
A limited number of chairs are available each year for outstanding violinists, violists, cellists and double bass players. Selection is made via audition and a one-day trial in Manchester, and all applicants should have recently completed – or are in the process of completing – postgraduate studies at a recognised EU or International Conservatoire.
The course guarantees a minimum of £10,000 paid work with the Hallé and the chance to apply for the Charles Hallé Award worth £2,000. Students are mentored by and work in close collaboration with the Hallé’s section leaders, and their overall development will be overseen by the Music Director of the Hallé, Sir Mark Elder.
As well as providing orchestral training (including opportunities to play alongside the principal players) and high profile external public performances, the course will enable students to further develop their playing skills with instrumental tuition from Europe’s finest teachers at the RNCM together with specialist classes in communication and presentation skills, people management, chamber music, coaching and leadership, and education workshop delivery. A large number of previous course members now enjoy successful careers within the Hallé and orchestras around the world.
In the region of £2,700 (TBC)*
