The Organ Scholars are responsible for planning and leading the liturgical music during term time at St Paul’s, including directing and rehearsing the University of Bristol Church Choir.  Applicants are not expected to have prior knowledge of choral direction and will be supported in developing this skill in their first year by the Senior Organ Scholar.  With no director of music at St Paul’s, the organ scholars will gain a great deal of practical experience, playing or conducting every week, while being supported and encouraged by the choir, clergy team and other members of St Paul’s Church.  This is perhaps in contrast to many other organ scholarships, where the scholar may have less overall responsibility, but works with a team of experience professional organists.

St Paul’s is an Inclusive Church where all are welcomed without expectation, and the Scholarship will be awarded irrespective of the religious convictions of the candidate.
