Building on their successful choral scholarship scheme for young singers, the Esterhazy Singers are pleased to invite Alto and Bass applications for their 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 in choral singing both as ensemble member and soloist. Successful applicants will receive £750 per annum, paid in 3 equal parts after each term (2018 calendar year). There are normally 4 or 5 public performances 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 performances including solo opportunities. For example the current choral scholars were recently soloists for Haydn Paukenmesse and Mozart Vespers with orchestra. There will also be opportunities for 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 solo and ensemble singing or just starting in that field.

A CV with covering letter and 2 references are required, one personal and one musical. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to join a rehearsal at the beginning of 2018 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. Applications should be received no later than Friday, 15th December 2017.
