Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields
Andrew Earis Director
The Choral Scholars of St Martin-in-the-Fields have an essential musical role at St Martin-in-the-Fields. Each year ten scholars – many of whom are music college students or graduates – are appointed to sing midweek choral services 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.
Andrew Earis is Director of Music at St Martin-in-the-Fields where he oversees the music programme at this busy London church. Recent performances include Mozart’s Mass in C Minor with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Beethoven Mass in C with Southbank Sinfonia. He is a graduate of the Royal College of Music and Imperial College, London, and holds a PhD from the University of Manchester. In addition to his duties at St Martin’s, Andrew is a regular contributor to BBC Radio’s religious output as a producer of programmes including Radio 4 Sunday Worship and Radio 3 Choral Evensong.
