Young conductor mentoring scheme

The scheme is an opportunity for two talented young musicians, aged 18 to 35, with a passion for conducting to develop their conducting skills in a mentoring programme run by Crouch End Festival Chorus. 


Young Conductor Mentoring Scheme 2020-21

17 musicians applied to be part of the 2020-21 programme for 18 to 35 year olds. Six were selected for audition and asked to prepare two pieces of music – parts of the Fauré Requiem and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms  – and conduct a small choir. 

The young conductors selected for 2020-21 are 24 year old Charlie Perry and 22 year old Elliot Mercer.

The current scheme has been extended to the end of December 2021 to allow Charlie and Elliot to spend more time with the choir as we return to in-person rehearsals and live performance.
