International Summer School (ISS) 2019 – Music Development Scholarships

5 – 11 August 2019, Norfolk.  

Thanks to a generous gift, we are delighted to be able to offer up to three full scholarships to people in positions of musical and/or spiritual leadership within their church (UK/Ireland only), who otherwise couldn’t afford to attend our International Summer School.

The ISS is a week-long opportunity to experience worship through music from the 14th to the 21st century, with excellent tuition from inspirational leaders. A pilgrimage theme runs through the week, so we shall visit and sing in amazing buildings guided by musical and liturgical specialists. We are offering a comfortable, homely residential base in the countryside outside Norwich; opportunity to meet and learn from composers Cecilia McDowall and Joel Payne in person; adequate time for learning on-site in pleasant, bright rooms; cathedral choral worship shared with the RSCM’s top youth choir, the MYC; fellowship and friendship.

The closing date for scholarship applications is Friday 25 January 2019.
