The Peacock Choral Scholarships

Each year, there are vacancies for four choral scholars (soprano, alto, tenor and bass) to sing as section leaders within the Parish Choir. Scholars are expected to attend all services and rehearsals (within the university term, if students). These include the regular Thursday and Sunday commitments, as well as occasional extra services, such as Ash Wednesday or the Advent Carol Service. As this is a leadership role within the choir, regular attendance, punctuality, and a level of preparation are key. We, in return, offer all the support a singer needs and lots of musical opportunities. The honorarium is £100 per month, paid in arrears. We are grateful to The Ouseley Trust for their support of this initiative The scholarships are named in honour of Frederick Peacock, Organist Emeritus Contact: Drew Cantrill-Fenwick For: Experienced adult singers and students in tertiary education Rehearsals: Thursday 19.00-20.15 in Church, Sundays 9.00 for 9.30 and 17.00 for 18.00 (3rd Sunday of the month) Is there an audition?
