For nearly two decades, the Radio 3 New Generation Artists Scheme has nurtured the talents of some of the world's finest instrumentalists, chamber ensembles and singers at the outset of their international careers. Each year, six or seven young musicians are offered a two year platform on which to develop their solo and chamber music careers. This includes studio recordings, engagements with the BBC Orchestras and a raft of engagements at some of the UK's leading Festivals including the BBC Proms, Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh Festivals among many others.
