Bingham Choral Society to launch bursary and prize
In the autumn Bingham Choral Society will launch 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 will be invited in the early autumn, 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.
Full details, including information on how to enter, will be available shortly on this website. There will be a non-refundable entry fee of £10.
