These choral scholarships offer a similar experience to a cathedral choir, but with a much lighter commitment. They are ideal for those considering e.g. university choral scholarships, and are complimentary to participation in e.g. Eton Choral Courses,
National Youth Choir etc.
St Mary’s is the oldest church in Surrey, built c.AD 670 in Saxon times. It has a famed 1975 Frobenius organ. The church music is supported by the RC Sherriff Trust, the Ouseley Church Music Trust, and choralevensong.org
