St Martin's Voices Fellowship
St Martin-in-the-Fields is delighted to announce the St Martin’s Voices Fellowship Scheme 2020. The scheme provides an opportunity for between six and eight singers to enjoy an intensive, focused period of training with others of a similar standard and interests and is an integral part of the exciting choral music programme at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The scheme is aimed at choral singers who have held choral scholarships or similar at university and elsewhere, are in the first stage of a professional career in singing, and wish to develop their skills as choral and consort singers to a high level.
Alongside working with Andrew Earis, Director of Music at St Martin’s, the Fellows will work with other leading choral directors including Neil Ferris, Dominic Peckham, Will Dawes and Emily Dickens and composers including Cecilia McDowall and Will Todd. The scheme also includes a performance at the Greenbelt Festival in August 2020, two other trips around the UK, to Norfolk and Cornwall, and an overseas trip to Brussels. The singers will generally perform as a stand-alone ensemble, however, they will occasionally join with other members of St Martin’s Voices for larger scale repertoire.
The St Martin’s Voices Fellowship Scheme 2020 is a seven-month programme running from January to August 2020, over which time there will be eight projects, with regular Wednesday afternoon rehearsals and workshops.
Auditions will take during the w/c Monday 9 December. Please indicate your availability on the application form. Shortlisted applicants will be asked to perform a solo piece of up to 5 minutes in length, prepare a set piece, and undertake sight-reading, aural tests and a short interview.
