Bridging the what…?
Starting out on a professional career as a musician is both thrilling and terrifying. Taking the step between music college or university and self-employment might seem daunting. But there’s no doubt that the advice and support of established professionals can help to make the process smoother, more enjoyable and more rewarding.
Bridging the Gap is our platform for early-career musicians. It’s designed to help foster young talent, allowing singers and instrumentalists to consolidate existing skills and acquire new ones as they begin their journey on the path from young performer to fully fledged professional.
How does it work?
Selected by open audition each year, up to four young musicians will perform alongside and be mentored by Dunedin’s regular cast of performers. The scheme offers a unique opportunity to tour with our internationally renowned musicians and to gain from their expertise.
This initiative is part of our commitment to fostering the next generation of musicians, providing them with a unique opportunity to grow and develop on the path to a professional career.
