Britten Pears Arts is a pioneering music, arts and heritage charity based on the Suffolk coast. It was created in 2020 when the two long-established charities which formed the legacy of Britten and Pears’ life and work, Snape Maltings (formerly Aldeburgh Music) and Britten-Pears Foundation came together.
These are new roles aimed at candidates who are interested in starting a career within a dynamic arts organisation. They are ideally suited to someone who is interested in working with diverse communities and as part of a team which is proactively taking music into those communities with the over-arching aim of using music to improve lives, or who are interested in starting a career within a dynamic arts organisation with a strong tradition of nurturing young and new musical talent. It is ideally suited to someone with an interest in working with young and emerging artists and who has a passion for any genre of music.
Our Community team works with families, young people, those in care homes and those in the criminal justice system. An important part of this role will be about supporting colleagues and artists, helping to build positive relationships with participants, and ensuring inclusivity for all.
Our Artist Development team delivers the Aldeburgh Young Musicians programme for those aged 10 to 18, the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme for emerging artists and Residencies which can be based at Snape or The Red House, Aldeburgh. An important part of this role will be about supporting the team, helping to build positive relationships with participants and artists, setting up and overseeing rehearsals and projects at Snape, assisting AYM students with financial support and fees, record keeping and helping with the evaluation of projects.
