Following the successful inaugural year of their choral scholarship scheme for young singers, the Esterhazy Singers are pleased to invite applications for their 2017/2018 awards.

The choir is based in the City of London under the inspirational leadership of Andrea Brown who was elected as Musical Director of the choir at the end of 2016. Andrea is a highly experienced choral conductor and artistic director who has a professional singing background.

This is an excellent opportunity for a young person to gain invaluable experience of choral singing. Successful applicants will receive £600 per annum, paid in equal parts after each term. There are normally 4 or 5 events a year. Choral scholars will be expected to attend regular rehearsals, usually on Tuesdays at 19:00 at St. Magnus the Martyr on Lower Thames Street and to sing at all concerts. There will be opportunities for solo work as well as further development of skills in choral leadership and conducting specific to each candidate’s experience.

Applicants should be between 18 and 25 years old and ideally should be considering a career in choral music or just starting in that field. There will be up to four scholarships on offer.

A CV with covering letter and 2 references are required, one personal and one musical. Applications must be received by 14th August 2017. Shortlisted applicants will then be asked to join our rehearsal on Tuesday, 5th September when there will be an audition with Andrea Brown and a short meeting with two members of the choir’s committee.

Those interested should apply by email to Jane Coupe at treasurer@esterhazysingers.com

The choir is very keen to encourage younger people to get involved in choral music and to attract young blood.  Thus the Esterhazy Singers is delighted to announce that in future and with immediate effect, any successful applicant to join our thriving and happy choir and who is under the age of 25 on the date of joining will be entitled to free subscription until that age is passed. This policy follows the successful launch of our Young Singers Bursary scheme in September 2014.
