Most Cambridge College choirs are composed of a mix of Award-holders (determined through the application process) and volunteers.
Volunteers in a particular College choir are sometimes students at another College and may include graduate students as well as undergraduates.
Some Colleges have sufficient Award-holders (and in some cases volunteers) to fill their choir vacancies from their own student body, but when places remain it is possible to volunteer and be auditioned after you have arrived in Cambridge.
