The City Music Foundation (CMF) has announced the latest batch of young artists joining its programme as 2022 CMF Artists. Selected from a diverse field of applicants, the young artists will join CMF's two-year artist development programme. They are the 10th consecutive intake on the scheme, selected through a series of audition stages, culminating in a final live audition to our expert panels of judges in the Great Hall of St Bartholomew's Hospital. The artists were chosen due to their exceptional talent, regardless of instrument or genre, and because we felt they would benefit from the range of support CMF provides.

The 2022 CMF Artists are Emmanuel Coppey (violin), Jonathan Eyers (baritone, last seen in the Guildhall School's production of Judith Weir's Miss Fortune, see my review), Sebastian Issler (pianist-in-residence), Waynne Kwon (cello), Helena Ricci (harp), Caroline Taylor (soprano, last seen in the title role of HGO's production of Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen, see my review), Claire Ward (soprano), Mikeleiz-Zucchi Duo (accordion/saxophone), Paddington Trio (piano trio) and Piano Phase Project (piano duo). For this intake, CMF has selected its first pianist-in-residence, Sebastian Issler, who will collaborate with the singers and, it is hoped, develop lasting relationships.

CMF will be presenting a series of lunchtime recitals in the Great Hall of St Bartholomew's Hospital during the first half of 2023 (before renovations begin on the hall). The season opens with soprano Claire Ward on 18 January 2023, with subsequent concerts being on 22 February, 22 March, 19 April, 17 May, and 14 June.
