The Sixteen recently announced the 2019/20 cohort of young singers for Genesis Sixteen. Over the course of a year members of Genesis Sixteen take part in a series of week-long and weekend courses led by key figures from The Sixteen, including founder and conductor Harry Christophers and Associate Conductor Eamonn Dougan. Participants receive group tuition, individual mentoring and masterclasses run by some of the world’s top vocal experts. Support from the Genesis Foundation means participants receive free tuition and a bursary to cover all additional costs. The scheme is now in its eighth year and has worked with over 150 participants.

There will be chance to hear the 2018/19 Genesis Sixteen in action on Saturday 20 July 2019 as part of the Sixteen's Sounds Sublime Festival at St Clement Dane's Church. Genesis Sixteen will be giving a lunchtime concert, the culmination of the year-long training programme, beforehand in the morning Genesis Sixteen alumni will be supporting Streetwise Opera in a performance responding to Eric Whitacre’s Leonardo Dreams of his Flying Machine, the culmination of a series of workshops with The Sixteen’s education department and Streetwise Opera.
