Emily Beech, Choral Scholar 2021-22
"It has been such a joy and a privilege to be part of the first cohort of choral scholars for TPC. With solo performances and concerts and the Scholars' Recitals, it’s been a great opportunity to get more performance experience under my belt. There is so much love for music in this Choir, they’ve been so welcoming and I’m really going to miss singing such fab repertoire with them on my Tuesday evenings!"
Choral Scholarship Scheme
Thames Philharmonic Choir launched a new Choral Scholarship scheme for the 2021-22 season offering 4 TPC scholarships (one for each voice part) to singers aged 18-28. TPC is keen to support aspiring young singers wishing to pursue a solo career in music or those who wish to continue singing to a high technical standard while working in other fields. The scheme is open to anyone who enjoys singing, whether studying music, starting music careers or simply wanting to expand their singing and performance opportunities. The post offers a stipend of £1,000 a year, together with some paid solo performing and recital opportunities.
If this sounds interesting, please complete the TPC scholarship application form and prepare two pieces of repertoire for audition in front of Harry Bradford and James Orford. You are welcome to apply at any time during the year and the deadline is 4th June. The auditions for the 2023-24 choral year will take place on Saturday 24th June at St Margaret’s church in Putney (Putney Park Lane, SW15 5HU).
