As an Anglican school, Saint Albans is firmly rooted in the tradition of the historic Church. We are ever-conscious of our Anglican identity, one important aspect of which is the great and glorious tradition of choral music.
Choirs have long been an integral part of the Anglican worship experience and many of England’s great composers, including Britten, Vaughan Williams, Tavener and Rutter, have contributed to the Anglican choral experience.
Saint Albans’ choir programme offers a high-quality musical education for children in Grades Four through Six. Students receive intensive training in voice, sight-reading, and music theory.
The choir practises three times each week after school. It performs monthly at various worship services and holds concerts and other seasonal events during the course of the academic year.
A limited number of partial scholarships are open to boys and girls entering Grades Four through Six, with a keen interest in music and the choral tradition who are committed to being part of the Choral Music Programme. In order to be considered, an applicant must provide a letter of recommendation from their current music teacher and sustain an audition.
Scholarships are applicable to tuition and fees, exclusive of books and normal school supplies.
Application for the scholarships may be made by completing the application for admission and the scholarship application. Further information about choir scholarships can be obtained from the admissions office.
