Auditions for 2023/24 and 2024/25 will take place by arrangement from March 2023 onwards.
If you will be visiting either of the Exeter campuses for the Offer-Holder Visit Day on Saturday 1st April you are welcome to contact us to arrange an audition.
Prospective students visiting for Open Days in the summer (dates to be confirmed) are also welcome to arrange an audition for that time. This applies whether you are planning to study here in 2023/24 or 2024/25.
Students who have been successful in their audition will be advised of their place in the choir at the end of July.
Auditions for remaining places in the choir for 2023/24 will be arranged for the first week of the Autumn Term.
Auditions for places in the choir for 2024/25 will continue during Offer-Holder Visit Days during the spring of 2024, and the first week of Autumn Term 2024.
The choir attracts singers of a high musical standard.
Prospective scholars will ideally have 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
- the ability to work to a high standard within a small group
If you would like to audition for the Chapel Choir or if you have any questions, please contact the Director of Chapel Music, Michael Graham.
