Community Choir Scholarship for Young People

The Parish Trust Community Choir is pleased to announce that, in partnership with The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, a number of scholarships are available for young people to join the choir with all fees and associated costs paid for.

A total of 20 scholarships will be made available, for 10 boys and 10 girls of secondary school age, to sing with the Community Choir and gain valuable training and experience. The choir sings a varied repertoire of music, from musicals to pop, classical to spiritual.

The scholarships have been made possible through grant funding from The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust, who like The Parish Trust, are passionate about giving young people opportunities to flourish. In this instance, The Parish Trust are able to do this by providing opportunities for young people to access the Arts through singing scholarships at The Community Choir.

The scholarship will pay for all the associated membership subscriptions, music, and any other fees associated with the choir for one year.

Rev. Dean Aaron Roberts, who is the Chair of Trustees and also leads the choir said,

This is a very exciting opportunity for young people in the area, especially as music tuition is often costly, and statutory provision for music in schools is under great pressure at the moment. I was fortunate to be able to have music lessons as a child, which allowed me to grow to love making music and bringing music to other people’s lives. It is therefore a wonderful thing that The Parish Trust is able, as an organisation, to provide this opportunity to 20 young people in our area.

Any young person who is interested in applying for the scholarship should enquire via email to detailing their reasons for wanting to join the programme, and any musical experience they have (though experience is not a prerequisite for being accepted onto the scholarship programme.)

Please note that in order to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and to enjoy the Easter Holidays, The Parish Trust will be closed from Thursday 28th March 2024 and will reopen on Monday 8th April 2024. We wish all our stakeholders and beneficiaries a Happy Easter.
