The majority of the Choir is made up of undergraduate Choral Scholars. The selection process for Choral and Organ Scholarships is centrally organised, with auditions and interviews being conducted in mid-September. Choral candidates are required to return in December for the selection process for an academic place. More information can be found at the Music Faculty website.
A University Open Day for those considering applying for a Choral or Organ Scholarship is held annually in April; further details can be found on the Music Faculty website. We are also very happy for potential applicants to visit on an informal basis, and may be able to arrange for you to sing with the choir during your visit. Similarly, we are very happy to consider visits by schools or youth choirs. Please contact the Director of Music for further information.
Postgraduate students who wish to apply for a Choral Scholarship are generally advised to contact the Director of Music once they have been accepted to the University.
On occasion, vacancies arise for able musicians from the wider University and city community. These are advertised on this page, and will be announced in the news section. Even if there are no vacancies, speculative enquiries from talented musicians are always welcome.
