Choral and Organ Scholars

Alongside the sixteen Choristers, the Choir today comprises fourteen Choral Scholars, all reading for degrees in a variety of subjects, and two organ scholars.

Choral Scholars

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.

Organ Scholars

The Organ Scholars at King’s are undergraduate students at the College who have a range of roles and responsibilities in assisting the Director of Music. Principally these involve playing for choral services in the Chapel, but the Organ Scholars help too with the training of the choristers and probationers, as well as rehearsing and conducting the full choir from time to time.
