Young Artist Development Program

Since the 2012-13 season, the Bakersfield Master Chorale has sponsored a Young Artists’ Development Program (YADP). Through the YADP, the Chorale benefits from having a small number of professionally trained young musicians (singers, conductors, pianists, and arrangers) who agree to: (1) sing in the Chorale for the season; (2) understudy the professional solos; (3) provide other professional musical services in accordance with their skills and background.
