The Choral Scholar program at Saint Paul’s is intended to introduce young and talented vocalists to quality choral music in a church setting. Through their involvement in the Saint Paul’s choral program, choral scholars will have the opportunity to work with accomplished musicians on a weekly basis, perform a large volume of quality music at a very high level and gain further proficiency in sight-reading and vocal confidence. Young singers will also gain insight into the requirements of being a professional musician.
Typical weekly schedule:
Thursdays: Rehearsal 7:30 – 9:30 pm
Sundays: Choral Eucharist 10:30 am (9:30 call) or a 5:00 pm Choral Evensong service.
Often, there is one scheduled Sunday off a month. Other special services as scheduled, such as Christmas & Holy Week. Conflicts with school calendars are manageable.
In exchange for their participation, and to reinforce professional standards of behavior and musical preparation, each choral scholar will be compensated at a rate of $25 per appearance (about $1500 for the course of the year).
