GCS Choral Apprentices

GCS Young Singers

Our group of Choral Apprentices is fast becoming a mainstay of GCS, and we want more youthful voices to join us.

We’re extremely lucky to have Bob Chilcott as the scheme’s President. The Observer calls him ‘a contemporary hero of British choral music’. We agree.

As a Choral Apprentice, you’ll enjoy free tuition and guidance from singing teacher Russell Burton, Musical Director at St Philip’s & St James’s Church in Cheltenham and examiner for ABRSM. You’ll also have the chance to compete for both the Ken Fox Prize and the Frances Henson Cup.

Choral singing is great for building confidence and skill. Our apprentices sing in all our concerts – often from memory.

Interested?

If you are aged between 14 and 18 contact Sally Scanlon on 01242 576471, or e-mail youngsingers@gloucesterchoral.com.

We’d love to hear from you.

Rehearsals are genuinely enjoyable, and the concerts are some of the most magnificent events I’ve ever participated in.
– J Stokes, GCS Young Singer
The Young Singers scheme is so much more than invaluable singing lessons, it’s the fun of being part of a huge choir and the unmissable opportunities that come with that. I love it!!
– L Cole, GCS Young Singer
