Andrew Earis Conductor


The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at the Church of St Martin-in-the-Fields in Londy’s Trafalgar Square. Each year ten scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing at numerous choral services each year, as well as gainingconcert experience through our lunchtime and evening concert series, and benefiting 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 in aid of the our work with homeless people. In July 2014 the Choral Scholars toured York and Northumberland, and in May 2015 they visited Berlin.
