All Saints’ has always had a strong musical life. Our small and friendly choir continues to lead the worship at the 10.00 am Eucharist every Sunday, at our monthly service of Evensong and at other major festivals such as Christmas, Easter, All Saints and All Souls. We always welcome new recruits, and if you are interested in joining us the Director of Music, Andrew Macintosh, would be delighted to speak to you.
Once again this year we are offering choral scholarships for University students. These are worth £250 each per academic year.
One scholarship is available in each voice part (soprano, alto, tenor, bass). Scholarship holders are expected to attend all meetings of the choir (including rehearsals on Thursday evening, 6.00 pm to 7.00 pm) during the University semester.
Scholarship holders should have at least some experience of choral singing within a small choir, and should be competent sight readers. Application is by audition at the start of semester 1 in September; the audition consists of a prepared audition piece, sight-reading and hymn-singing, as well as a short discussion about your experience.
