Talent Development Partners 2019: Sage Gateshead
Sage Gateshead is an international music centre situated on the banks of the River Tyne. We are home to Royal Northern Sinfonia, Folkworks regional folk agency, a diverse concert and festival programme and an extensive creative learning programme enabling people of all ages and abilities to make music.
In 2019 Sage Gateshead will continue to develop its programme for early career music creators, building on the new relationships with artists initiated through the Great Exhibition of the North and expanding the opportunities offered through our Summer Studio, Associate Artists and festivals programmes.
Artists will benefit from year-round opportunities including
• Summer Studio 2019, giving up to thirty-six music creators a career defining moment to develop artistically and professionally through studio space, cross-genre collaboration, surgeries with established artists and other music industry professionals, recording sessions and performance spots on Sage Gateshead’s world-class stages.
• Sage Gateshead’s Associate Artists programme, creating bespoke opportunities for six artists including commissions, touring and opportunities to work closely with Royal Northern Sinfonia and our classical, jazz, folk and choral youth ensembles.
• Summer Tyne Americana and Folk on the Tyne festivals will have new slots dedicated to promoting emerging artists from the North East and further afield.
• A new Bi-Monthly performance series showcasing the North East’s local music scene.
