The Chapel Choir of St. Hild & St. Bede are an auditioned choir of roughly 24 singers who sing two services a week in the beautiful Bede Chapel, with occasional Compline services and concerts in addition. Our regular weekly commitment is to a 4pm rehearsal for a 5:45 Eucharist on Wednesday, and a 9:30 rehearsal for an 11am Eucharist on Sunday. We also get the chance to sing outside Hild Bede – in 2017/18 we went on tour to Dublin in January and Bucharest in the summer, as well as singing in Durham, York, Newcastle and St. Paul’s Cathedrals.

There are 8 choral scholarships available to Hild Bede students, each worth £125 per year. We hold choral scholarship auditions separately after Christmas, where we look for commitment and contribution to the choir in the first term. Choir members from all colleges get two free college meals each week – dinner after Wednesday evensong and brunch after Sunday eucharist.

We are looking for singers from all voice parts and will be holding auditions for singers and two organ scholarships in early October.
