Robbie Jacobs, a graduate of King's College, Cambridge, who is currently at the Royal Academy of Music, is the first student conductor to be appointed to Genesis Sixteen. He will take part in all four Genesis Sixteen courses during 2014/15 and will conduct some public performances. Jacobs also conducts his own ensemble, Reverie, made up of former members of Genesis Sixteen (Reverie recently took part in the London A Cappella Choir Competition). Genesis Sixteen is the UK's first ever fully-funded programme of its kind, which aims to nurture the next generation of choral singers.

David Doidge will be the first Genesis Trainee Répétiteur at Welsh National Opera. David Doidge join WNO in September for two years, taking on a role which gives an emerging musician the chance to be mentored by WNO music staff. This is a continuation of the Genesis Foundation's partnership with WNO which started in January 2013 with the appointment of Polly Graham as Genesis Assistant Director. When David joins WNO in September he will start by working on Carmen followed by Chorus! and The Magic Flute.
