The Royal Conservatory of Music is joining forces with the prestigious Marylebone School of Music, a prestigious college for the performing arts, to offer a program in London.
The announcement was made by Sir Elton John, who serves as an ambassador for the Royal Conservatory. The charity announced the addition of Marylebone in June.
The collaboration will allow for students from the two institutions to participate in four inaugural offerings. In addition to two-week summer programs, it will include programs in summer opera and classical guitar.
To access these opportunities, students must receive full scholarship consideration from their high school’s audition committee. For more information, visit reg.org.uk/elton.
