Choral scholars must be enrolled in full-time education and are appointed for one semester; scholarships can be renewed by mutual consent and subject to meeting expectations. The regular choir rehearsal schedule is listed above. In addition, there will be Choral Evensong and concerts offerings on Sundays (dates to be determined) Choral Scholars are paid per call, with two (sometimes three) calls per week. The scholarships have a degree of flexibility, designed to suit School/College/University semesters.
