Choral Scholars of St Martin’s
The Choral Scholars have an essential musical role at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Every year twelve 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 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. The choral scholars recently took part in a recording of BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship programme from Holy Island in Northumberland.
Lunchtime Concerts are FREE, suggested donation £3.50 which goes towards the work of St Martin’s
