Following the successful pilot last year of the National Talent Programme (NTP) with British-Indian soprano Natasha Agarwal, we are thrilled to announce that we will expanding this opportunity to support two wonderful and exciting sopranos - Moloko Letsoalo and Shafali Jalota.

The National Talent Programme represents the highest level of support we offer through our Diverse Voices initiative and is delivered on a part-time, flexible basis. Training includes coaching, mentoring, skills development, and stagecraft classes, along with recital performance opportunities - all running alongside our full-time Global Talent Programme.

Moloko and Shafali will join us as Young Artists on the National Talent Programme for the 2023/24 training year. They perform alongside our Global Talent Programme Young Artists at the Studio for the very first time on Wednesday 4 October - the first Wandsworth Wednesday recital of the year. These are free, ticketed events so make sure to book through our website to avoid disappointment!
