RLSBC is pleased to offer Choral Scholarships of £180 per season to successfully auditioned young singers who wish to broaden their experience of choral music and public performance. Choral scholarships are open to anyone aged 16 – 25 with a keen interest in singing with the ability to read music, and a willingness to commit.
The application process consists of a short interview followed by an audition with our conductor Nigel Stark. The audition will be performed privately and will involve some voice exercises, simple sight reading, and a short demonstration of your singing. There is no requirement to prepare a set audition piece.
The scholar’s commitment is to attend a minimum of 80% of rehearsals per term and all concerts. In return, they will receive a bursary of £60 per term for three terms, payable at the end of each term; free music hire; free membership of the choir for the year and two free tickets for the RLSBC concert of your choice during the year.
A limited number of scholarships, in any voice part, are awarded for one season at a time on a competitive basis and expressions of interest for 2018-19 are invited now. If you are interested in finding out more or wish to apply for a scholarship please contact the Choir’s Secretary via email at email@example.com
