Choral Scholarships at St Peter’s Church, Streatham - 2012/2013
Following the successful appointment of a choral scholar in 2012/13, the Director of Music would be delighted to hear from potential applicants for the 2013/14 period. See details below. We are delighted to announce that the Ouseley Trust has generously sponsored this appointment for the 2013/14 year.
The successful candidate will receive an honorarium of £1,000 and will be expected to sing for 33 full weekends during the year (Friday rehearsal and two Sunday services), plus three midweek festivals and two concerts.
The scholarship would be ideal for a young singer wishing to continue or develop their choral singing, perhaps in preparation for university choral scholarships, or as a means of improving sight-singing skills and repertoire knowledge prior to auditioning for work on the professional London Sunday singing circuit.
Music is central to the life of the church, which also hosts a regular monthly concert series featuring the church’s professional ensemble-in-residence, The Berkeley Ensemble, and other young professional ensembles and soloists.
The choir regularly contributes to the concerts in the series, and for strong solo singers in the choir there are opportunities for solo recital concerts.
Sound clips of the choir can be found below and on the choir page of this website.
