The St Martin’s Voices Fellowship provides an opportunity for between six and eight singers to enjoy an intensive, focused period of training with others of a similar standard and interests and is an integral part of the exciting choral music programme at St Martin-in-the-Fields. The scheme is aimed at choral singers who are in the first few years of a professional career in singing, and wish to develop their skills as choral and consort singers to a high level.

St Martin’s runs a number of artist development schemes, both in London and elsewhere, aiming to nurture the next generation of talented ensemble singers and choral conductors.

The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at St Martin-in-the-Fields.  Each year up to ten scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing at midweek services at St Martin’s, and our partner church in the city, St Stephen Walbrook, during term time. They also gain concert experience through our lunchtime and evening concert series, and benefit from an extensive programme of training in different aspects of church and choral music.

With thanks to The Williams Church Music Trust, The Golsoncott Foundation, and the Garrick Charitable Trust for supporting the Choral Scholarships 2021-22.
