Bursary for Young Tenor

Wimbledon Choral Society (“WCS”) is a successful choir that is fortunate to benefit from a strong membership covering a wide age range including those in their 20s and drawn mainly from the local population.   It has been described as "one of the most substantial and formidable choirs in London".   WCS has an enviable reputation for performing concerts of professional quality in venues ranging from local churches in the Wimbledon area to cathedrals like Southwark in central London to national concert halls such as Cadogan Hall, Fairfield Halls (Croydon), the Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall.   It is also invited regularly to participate in other events, examples of which in recent years have included BBC TV’s Songs of Praise, the Royal British Legion’s Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall and has even sung at rugby league matches in Wembley Stadium and in a Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.  
The choir seeks to encourage young singers to experience and maintain the enjoyment of choral singing by sharing with them an extensive repertoire of choral music and styles which, it is hoped, will remain with them throughout their later lives and which will retain the tradition and art of choral singing in the future.   It believes that the diversity of opportunities offered by WCS may be attractive to young singers.   The management committee of the choir has decided the most appropriate way of doing this is through the means of a bursary scheme.
The scheme has been running successfully for several years.   For the 2019-20 season it is open to a tenor who would like to work with us.   Please click on the flyer shown left to learn more about this scheme and then click here for details on how and where to apply if you might be interested.
