Voice for Life and Singing Awards:
Bath Summer Course for Young People
A summer residency for young singers, with a strong ethos of community, sharing and great music, led by an experienced team of tutors. Singers undertake a full programme, including care and development of the voice, music tuition, Voice for Life training, recitals and choral services. Older singers will have opportunities to develop their musical leadership skills and are encouraged to take their new-found musical training and experience back to their choirs at home. Scholarships are available to help with the cost of course fees; the form can be downloaded below.
We also offer two Organ Scholarships (paying a reduced fee) for the Bath Course for Young People, allowing young players to study with the Course Organist and gain experience accompanying singers. Please download the flyer below for further details.
*A limited number of super early bird and early bird discounted places are available to individual/student members of the RSCM, or members of affiliate churches (“first come, first served”, on receipt of the deposit). Please indicate membership in the relevant place on the online form, or over the phone. We will confirm by email whether you have been successful in booking one of the discounted places.*
