FREE Lunchtime Concert: Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields
The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields perform a lively rendition of Horovitz’s Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo.
The Choral Scholars have an essential musical role at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Every year 10-12 scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing Choral Eucharist and Evensong every Wednesday during term time. They also gain concert experience, and benefit from an extensive programme of training in different aspects of 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 2014 the Choral Scholars toured York and Northumberland, and in May 2015 they visited Berlin.
