‘I’d never really sung much early music before, so to come to a choir where Josquin, Tallis and Monteverdi are part of the diet has been a revelation. My sight-singing and choral confidence has improved beyond measure and I’ve subsequently started coaching some of the choristers in the wider programme.’ TD, Choral Scholar

Organ & Conducting Scholarships

As well as our Choral Scholarships we have a range of opportunities available, from organ playing to choral conducting and youth choir leadership. These scholarships give budding musicians the opportunity to develop specific skills through work experience not offered in Higher Education, enabling them to launch performing careers in classical choral music. Clear progression routes, expert tuition and mentoring, invaluable contacts and regular performances (including BBC broadcasts, the Leeds International Organ Festival and joint concerts with the Gabrieli Consort) make these scholarships an invaluable and unparalleled experience.

One of the highlights of singing mass at St Peter's Basilica was our cathedral organ scholar Anthony conducting the choir - Anthony joined the choir 11 years ago as a treble, and is now studying music at Huddersfield University. Donate to our tour fund: https://justgiving.com/campaign/bcycrometour
