Open to both current students and prospective ones from October 2021,
One Junior Organ Scholarship and one Senior Organ Scholarship will be offered by the Chapter of Durham Cathedral to students of Durham University (Undergraduate or Postgraduate): Candidates are encouraged to apply for both positions and the scholarships will be awarded based on experience and ability. In addition to this, various alto, tenor, and bass choral scholarships are also available.
While there is no specific requirement relating to Church membership, it is nevertheless expected that the Organ Scholars will be in sympathy with the worship and mission of the cathedral and will want to identify with the common life of the community.
The closing date is Sunday 11 April 2021: later applications will be considered only if practicable. Applications should include the names and addresses of two referees, one at least of whom should be able to write about the candidate’s musical abilities and one at least of whom should be able to testify to his or her suitability to work with children.
