CHORAL SCHOLARSHIPS February – June 2018

St. Mary’s Parish Church, Haddington – a thriving Church of Scotland congregation in East Lothian and major performance venue in the Lammermuir Festival – welcomes applications from potential choral scholars from all parts from February to June 2018. With around 20 singers, the choir performs music in a variety of styles from the Church's rich heritage including Leighton, Stanford, MacMillan, and a rich selection of early music.

Choral scholars are offered £100 a month for participating in a weekly Thursday rehearsal (usually 7.30pm-9.30pm) and Sunday morning services (total time commitment usually 10.20am-12noon) as well as occasional extra services for Holy Week, concerts and other special events.

In addition to the fee specified, the music team offers vocal support and training, varied repertoire with opportunities for solos, and opportunities for additional public performances in services and elsewhere.

Auditions for the Choral Scholarships will take place by appointment during early 2018.

To register your interest, contact our Director of Choirs, Cole Bendall, on with a short summary of your singing experience.

Closing date for registering interest: Sunday 21 January 2018, 5pm.
