If you are a University of Exeter student who will be studying at Exeter for a full academic year or longer, then you are very welcome to audition for the Chapel Choir. There is no age limit - mature students are welcome.
For full details of what would be expected of you as a chorister, please see the role of a chorister.
The choir attracts singers of a high musical standard.
Prospective scholars will ideally have had some background in choral music at school or elsewhere, but this is not a requirement for auditioning. Familiarity with the Anglican choral tradition is desirable, but not essential.
Audition requirements are as follows:
- 2 contrasting pieces, prepared by the candidate
- Ear tests
- Psalm chanting - chanting Anglican and plainsong at sight
- Sight-singing tests
In addition to vocal quality, the expectations at audition are exceptional sight singing skills, general musicianship and the ability to work to a high standard within a small group.
Chapel Choir 2016-17
We are now looking to establish the Chapel Choir of the forthcoming academic year.
Auditions will take place during the first week of the Autumn Term (19th - 23rd September 2016).
This year's vacancies are:
- 3 Soprano Scholarships
- 4 Alto Scholarships
- 3 Tenor Scholarships
- 2 Bass Scholarships
The choral scholarships are worth £300 per annum. This is given in two halves through the academic year.
