Choral Scholarships at Wells Cathedral

The Cathedral is delighted to be able to offer opportunities for young singers at the start of their careers to sing with the internationally-renowned Wells Cathedral Choir as a member of the professional ‘back-row’, comprising nine Vicars Choral and three Choral Scholars (alto, tenor and bass).

Choral Scholarships, which are suitable for young musicians pre or post-university, usually last for one year, during which the Scholars sing in the Cathedral’s regular services, as well as in concerts, recordings and broadcasts. There are also opportunities to become further involved with the wider life of the Cathedral and Wells at large. Like the Vicars Choral and numerous other Cathedral employees, the Scholars live on the beautiful Medieval Vicars’ Close, and receive a generous package alongside the scholarship.
