Young Persons Choral Awards

DCS-Rehearsals-135-reduced In celebration of our twentieth year, Daventry Choral Society set up a Young Persons’ Choral Award scheme. The aim of the choral awards is to encourage young people to join the choir who would not otherwise have done so, in the hope that they will become regular singers and continue the choral tradition from which members of the Choral Society have derived such pleasure and satisfaction.

We are offering one award worth £240 each, for one year only from September each year, to be paid at the rate of £80 per term. The payment of each term’s allowance is conditional on the award holder meeting our usual requirements for attendance at rehearsals and concerts. We want to attract students in full-time education or in their gap-year, or any young person, who are between the ages of 16-25 years and who are interested in singing in a large choir.

DCS-Rehearsals-175--reducedWe are an enthusiastic and friendly SATB choir, ranging from novice to experienced, which shares its interest and musical talent with the local community by way of dynamic and exciting performances in the Daventry area in at least three concerts a year. Rehearsals take place at the Methodist Church , Daventry each Tuesday in term time, from 7.30 – 9.30pm with a short break for refreshments. To help improve our singing technique we hold Saturday training workshops each year, led by professional musicians, which have proved to be invaluable and great fun.

It would give us great pleasure to offer this award to you, if you are the right person. To apply, please complete an application form and take it with you to the next rehearsal. You may print as many copies as you wish.
