Emerging Artists Scheme – Applications now open for 2024

We are excited to be launching the second edition of our Emerging Artists Scheme – a project working with emerging and early career artists from a range of genres and backgrounds including jazz, classical and folk.

From January 2024 to September 2025, The Stoller Hall will offer development opportunities for up to six early-career musicians (individuals or groups). This includes a live performance as part of our Rush Hour concerts series, and advice sessions with a range of arts industry professionals.

We are inviting applications to the scheme from musicians who want to perform live and build their audiences, and to develop marketing, fundraising and management skills to support their own work.

Please read through the application details in the document below to find out more about the scheme and about how to submit an expression of interest, before filling out the application form.

“As a recent graduate, the Stoller Hall Emerging Artist scheme has been an excellent support and provided me with brilliant performance opportunities and industry contacts. I would highly recommend it to any musician or ensemble.” – Emerging Artist Phoebe Rayner


Please read through the application form: Emerging Artists Advert 2024.

Please submit your expression of interest, along with the completed application and monitoring forms (if you are a group, please submit one per member) by 9am on Monday 22 January 2024 via email to Fran Healey, Creative and Commercial Director at The Stoller Hall and Chetham’s: stolleradmin@chethams.com.

    I hope you are having a pleasant Christmas break, I am writing with regards to the emerging artists scheme. I am a student currently and can’t seem to find anywhere on the website about the age group of people who can apply?

    Best wishes,
