Vacancies - Choral Scholarship 2014
We are looking to appoint an Alto (Counter Tenor) and Bass Choral Scholar for the academic year 2014-15 here at Rochester Cathedral. Rochester with its wonderful historic past and exciting future makes it an excellent base for developing / pursuing a career as a young professional singer in London. Our excellent rail links to the capital with direct services to London Bridge, Cannon Street, Victoria, Charing Cross and Waterloo East and, of course the High Speed 1 link to St Pancras make it possible to get to many parts of the capital quicker than if you lived in it.
The choral timetable combined with rent-free accommodation and a scholarship of £3000 means that the position is ideal for dovetailing effectively with study at conservatoire in London; previous Scholars have successfully pursued studies at the RCM, Guildhall and Trinity Laban. The flexibility afforded by our pool of deputy lay clerks means that Choral Scholars who are involved in for example an opera production can negotiate absences for the run of the production.
An open, vibrant singing style is encouraged amongst the choristers which means that we are interested in hearing from all styles of voice as the adult members of the choir are encouraged to do likewise.
