Choral Award applications

This page is for offer holders who are interested in singing. It is part of the offer-holders section

About the Choir

We have an excellent mixed-voice choir at Christ's, who sing in three choral services each week in term time, as well as other events throughout the calendar. If you have an offer and enjoy singing, do read the choir pages to find out more. Choral awards include free singing lessons with professional teachers, opportunities to record CDs and to broadcast, a £100 annual honorarium, subsidised dinners after rehearsals and services, and the chance to go abroad on choir tours around the world.

Choral Award applications

We welcome applications from Christ's offer-holders for a Choral Award. The application deadline is 15 February, and you can read about the Choral Awards and audition process for them on the University website.

To apply for a Choral award, please send your choral award application to by 15 February (download the Choral Award Application Form and Instructions here). Your referee should then send your choral reference to by 1 March (download the Choral Award Reference Form here).

If you enjoy singing but feel unsure about applying for a Choral Award, do please get in touch so that our Director of Music can have a chat with you. 

Information for students who have applied

  • The application deadline was 15 February. Thank you to those of you who have applied.
  • Please ensure that you get your reference to us by the 1 March deadline. Your referee should use the Choral Reference Form which can be downloaded here.
  • The dates of the choral trials are 16-18 March 2020.
    We will send you your timetable by email in due course (27 Feb update: we should be able to get your timetable to you by the end of the day today).


Useful information for students coming to Choral Trials

Please ask the porters if you need directions on the day of your trials.

If you need somewhere to wait on the day, please feel free to sit in the College Buttery in First Court. Do bear in mind that it won't be like coming for interviews, with student helpers etc, so it will be important to check the map carefully to see where you need to go, and we recommend that you bring a book or some work to do if you will have time to wait between audition / meeting.
