The Melbourne Bach Choir gives two major concerts each year, with further performances by our new Chamber Choir. Our 2016 scholarship program has invigorated the choir and provided eight young singers with a $1500 scholarship, as well as the chance to perform in some of Melbourne’s premier concert venues, and in some concerts perform solos.
The presence of these eight core singers has brought an influx of younger members to the choir and made possible the formation of a chamber choir, which performs a more diverse range of repertoire.
The performance opportunities and stipend provided to our eight Scholars in 2016 has not only benefited these young singers, but also raised the standard of the choir as a whole, providing a renewal that has also benefited Melbourne concert audiences.
Donations will be used to provide scholarship applicants with a choral workshop experience as well as an audition at the selection stage, and to pay the stipends of the eight scholars who are successful.
