We have a vacancy for a Bass Choral Scholar for February-June 2017.
The scholarship is ideal for an aspiring professional singer wishing to develop his choral singing and sight-reading, or in preparation for university choral scholarships, and as a means of broadening repertoire knowledge. This Scholarship is worth £400. There will be occasional solo/quartet/semi chorus opportunities such as a pre-concert Colston hall foyer performance on 25th March and also a chance for the scholar to receive coaching from the choir’s Musical Director.
For more information and to download an application form please go to the the Choral Scholars section of our Young People page.
