St James’ awards Choral Scholarships to talented young singers to assist them financially with their musical studies and training, made possible through the generosity of various parishioners and supported by St James’ Church.
Rehearsals and Services
Choral scholars commit to Thursday evening rehearsals, and three to four Sunday morning church services per month, with an occasional evening service. Preference is given to singers able to commit to the Midnight Mass of Christmas and a busy Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter Day.
How to apply
The candidates are auditioned by the Director of Music in the early autumn. Up to four Choral Scholars are appointed per year.
