Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields
Andrew Earis Conductor
The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Each year, twelve scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing weekday Evensong and Choral Eucharist during term time. They also gain concert experience through out lunchtime and evening concert series, and benefit from an extensive programme of training in different aspects of the church and choral music.
Recent highlights of the scheme include participating in A Celebration for Ascension Day live on BBC Radio 4 under the direction of John Rutter and performing with Streetwise Opera and Woven Gold in a concert in aid of the Connection at St Martin’s. In July 2015 the Choral Scholars toured York and Northumberland, and in May 2015 and 2017 they visited Berlin.
