What we do : Auditions
Each year between January and February, around 400 singers audition for BYO, most of whom are in full-time study at one of the UK's music colleges on graduate or postgraduate courses; those who aren't are generally either about to start or have recently finished their studies.
Led by the Artistic Director and Director of Training and Productions, the audition panel is formed from BYO's Artistic Committee and other experienced opera professionals who are particularly expert in the development of young singers. First round auditions are held in London, Manchester, Cardiff, Glasgow and Birmingham before a second round is held in London.
From this extensive audition process, singers are selected for the BYO's Easter and Summer Workshops and Summer Season.
