Under the auspices of The Friends of Holy Trinity six choral scholarships have been established to support the choir of The Parish Church of the Holy Trinity. Election of choral scholars is made by the Organist and Choirmaster of Holy Trinity. Able singers (of all voices) are invited to audition for these scholarships.
Scholars will be required to sing in Holy Trinity on Sunday mornings (practice 10 am to 10.45 am; service 10.45 am to 12 noon) and for other occasional events during a period approximately from late September to early June, with flexibility to fit in with school holidays and university vacations. Sunday morning worship takes the form of a choral service which includes an introit, an anthem, and (at many services) a canticle or prose psalm.
The scholarships comprise of:
- One Senior Scholar (£12.50 per Sunday);
- Four Scholars (£10 per Sunday);
- One Junior Scholar (£7.50 per Sunday).
The aim of these scholarships is: (1) to strengthen the choir of Holy Trinity and thus contribute to the beauty and significance of its worship; (2) to enable young singers to gain experience in choral and solo singing and to widen their repertoire by engaging in a broad and demanding variety of church music; (3) to contribute to the cultural life of St Andrews, Town and Gown, by taking part in occasional concerts and recitals; and (4) to offer young singers a rewarding and challenging role with an educational and social dimension.
Singers (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, or Bass) wishing to audition for choral scholarships should contact EITHER Mr. Chukwudebelu “Chuck” Okudo (Organist and Praise Team Leader) by e-mail OR Gillian Craig (University Music Centre, Younger Hall)
