Choral Awards Open Day

The Choral Open Day is held alternately with Oxford each year, either at the end of April or at the beginning of May (see dates on the right-hand sidebar).

Students are welcome to contact the Director(s) of Music at their preferred College for more information. Colleges may also be able to offer advice and guidance to prospective Choral Award applicants at their other open events throughout the year.

The Cambridge Choral Experience

The Cambridge Choral Experience gives students in Years 7-13 and their teachers the opportunity to discover what life involves as a choral scholar at the University of Cambridge.

Choral information from the Colleges
