The Ebor Singers Scholars
An important component of The Ebor Singers since its founding 25 years ago has been the encouragement of singers at the beginning of their professional careers. In anticipation of the choir's 25th anniversary year, The Ebor Singers Scholarship Scheme has been established to support singers (undergraduate or graduate) as they begin their professional careers. As well performing with the choir, gaining ensemble and solo experience, the scholars are given opportunities to sing together as an ensemble at services, special events and workshops.
We will be inviting applications for 2020-21 in the spring - you can register your interest by emailing the choir.
