Choral Traineeships

Would you like to sing exciting choral music in wonderful venues in Edinburgh and beyond?

The Scottish Chamber Choir is offering four student traineeships to promising singers aged between 18 and 25. This is an opportunity to develop vocal technique, explore repertoire and enhance choral experience. The trainees will participate in regular concerts across Scotland and enjoy free membership of the choir. The Scottish Chamber Choir approaches a wide-ranging repertoire with fresh ideas and an enthusiasm for making new musical connections. Recent programmes have ranged from a sparkling Messiah with Baroque orchestra in the appropriate surroundings of Edinburgh’s historic Canongate Kirk to a cappella singing in the extraordinary acoustic of St Giles’ and an exploration of choral improvisation accompanied by the romantic organ of St Cuthbert’s church. The traineeships will be awarded on the basis of audition and interview and will run for one year with the possibility of renewal.
