Aldeburgh Music Aldeburgh Music is an internationally renowned performance centre with the nurturing of talent at its heart. The centrepiece of the Aldeburgh calendar is the Aldeburgh Festival in June, founded in 1948 by the composer Benjamin Britten, singer Peter Pears and writer Eric Crozier. Aldeburgh Music hosts a year-round programme of events including the Easter Festival, the Snape Proms every August, and a number of opportunities for artists at all stages of their careers to feed into the performance calendar. These include the UK’s most extensive training programme for young professional musicians, the Britten–Pears Young Artist Programme; Aldeburgh Young Musicians, for exceptionally talented 8–18 year olds; a long established, pioneering education programme with strong links to Suffolk schools; and Aldeburgh Residencies, a chance for artists to experiment, explore new ground and be inspired by this very special place.
