The lower voices of King's College Choir are made up entirely of undergraduate singers at the College known as choral scholars. Despite the Choir’s renown, its choral scholars come from many different backgrounds, and it is always worth making an enquiry or application, whatever you (or your school!) think of your own ability.
Life as a choral scholar:
- Seven services a week during term time, with a day off on Monday and two services on Sunday
- Regular television and radio broadcasts
- Concerts with leading orchestras and high profile solo opportunities
- Free singing lessons and consultations with leading singing teachers
- Expenses and fees for concerts and tours
- Free lessons in the Alexander Technique
- Masterclasses on many aspects of solo and choral performance
- A piano in your room and a grant to assist in the purchase of sheet music
- You can become a member of The King's Men (formerly 'Collegium Regale'), who have a concert and touring programme of their own. They also make recordings for the Signum label and have performed with high-profile artists ranging from Dizzee Rascal to the King’s Singers.
- You join a close-knit group of people with a great social life.
- You become part of the University music scene, where you can direct shows and put on concerts in a wide variety of musical styles.
