Closing date 31st October 2017

Bingham Choral Society has launched a bursary and prize, to be awarded to an outstanding candidate aged 23 or under, who seeks to make a career in classical music.  The bursary, donated by our Patron Mr. John Beaumont and his wife Barbara, will be worth £500.  The winner will be expected to use the bursary money to advance their musical education.  The prize will be the opportunity to take part in one of the Choir’s future concerts.

The competition for the bursary and prize is open to any musician (singer or instrumentalist) normally resident in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire or Rutland.  Applications are now invited with a shortlist announced in November.  Shortlisted candidates will be invited to give a short recital at the public final, to be held in Bingham Parish Church on Saturday January 20th, 2018.  The judging panel will include Angela Kay MBE, and Guy Turner, Musical Director of the Bingham Choir. There will be a non-refundable entry fee of £10.
