Joining St. Luke's Choir

St Luke's provides scholarships for up to four choral scholars each academic year. The scholarships are worth £1,600 each, payable in three instalments at Christmas, Easter, and at the end of July. Usually these scholarships are awarded during the summer for the following year. This page will be updated when new scholarships are available.

Choral scholars must be in full-time education, no younger than eighteen years of age, and are appointed for one year at a time; scholarships can be renewed year on year by mutual consent, if appropriate. Good sight-reading is essential.

The choir rehearses on Friday evenings from 7.00 - 8.15 pm and sings Eucharist (10.30 am) and Evensong (3.00 pm) on Sundays, with rehearsals at 9.30 am and 2.00 pm respectively. The choir does not sing on the Sundays after Christmas and Easter, nor in August. Excellent attendance is required.

The choir employs professional musicians as Director of Music and Organist, but is rare amongst London choirs in being one of the few that consists entirely of volunteer singers. The dedication and enthusiasm of everyone in the choir allows us to work with a broad and ever-expanding range of music. We often attract students that have recently graduated from university who are looking to continue singing in a choir that is similar to the one they may have just left - many of them then stay for years! Above all, we are a fun, sociable group which welcomes singers of all ages and from all walks of life.

Please contact us in order to arrange an audition if you are interested in applying.
