The Scholarships

The Choral Scholars will help to enhance and support the choir of St. Mary Magdalene. As well as having the opportunity to expand their knowledge of repertoire and technique, the scholars will be able to improve their abilities through a vast array of music making. The scholarship can serve as a solid foundation for those looking to seek choral scholarships at a university or college, and/or can help to consolidate and expand skills of those who may be studying at university or conservatoire.

Under the direction of the Director of Music, Alexander Knight, and the Assistant Organist, each Choral Scholar is expected to be present at all rehearsals and services during term time, as well as major Feast Days (Advent, Holy Week and Easter, Ascension Day, etc.) and concerts which may fall outside of term. Although not expected for Midnight Mass/ Christmas Day, scholars will be expected to attend all other Advent, Christmas, Holy Week and Easter services. 6 weeks’ holiday is permitted during the term of the scholarship by agreement with the DoM. The Choral Scholars may also have many opportunities for solo performances through the year by mutual agreement with the Director of Music. There will be a recital series as well as choral concerts. Scholars are encouraged to perform as a quartet or as soloists. It is hoped the Choral Scholars will have a thorough involvement in the music making and life of the church.


Person Specification

This position is open to all ages and stages of career (undergraduate, postgraduate, etc.) and provides an excellent training to those who are looking to support their music studies and improve their abilities as a choral singer and/or soloist. Applicants should have some experience of choral and/or solo singing and have secure sight-reading skills. Previous experience of church music is highly desirable but not essential. Good self-management and time keeping are necessary. Above all, a passion for high standards of music making and choral singing is crucial. It is also expected that scholars will take part in some wider aspects of the church’s life, being good team-players willing to work well with others.
