The New Generation Artists come from a wide field, and represent a cross-section of the most exciting and talented young musicians in Britain and internationally today. The scheme opens up a wide range of opportunities over two years to develop their live and recorded performances for radio, including live broadcasts with BBC orchestra, lunchtime concerts from around the UK and regular studio recordings. The artists are also encouraged to be involved in chamber music collaborations with fellow NGAs.

Radio 3 is broadcasting live from a pop-up studio at London's Southbank Centre all day every day for the last two weeks of March. If you're in the area, visit the Radio 3 studio and performance space in the Royal Festival Hall Riverside Café to listen to Radio 3, ask questions and enjoy the special events.
