Securing the future

SJC Choir

We aim to reach our target of £2.5 million in order to support the day-to-day running of the Choir.

Sample projects

Choristerships

The College seeks to make choristerships available to all regardless of their economic circumstances. A gift of £12,800 would fund one choristership for one year, and a named choristership could be endowed in perpetuity by a donation of £320,000. The Choir’s flexibility and ability to develop its distinctive sound would be enhanced by the addition of 4 new places for choristers to the 20 already available.

Choral and Organ Scholarships

A gift of £4,500 would cover all costs associated with holding a choral scholarship for one year. A donation of £110,000 would endow a named scholarship in perpetuity. A gift of £6,000 would cover all costs associated with holding an organ scholarship for one year. A donation of £150,000 would endow such a scholarship in perpetuity.

My time in the Choir has been the greatest influence on my life: the quest for excellence, precision and discipline. Cambridge Colleges should guard this very special tradition.

Francis Burrows, former Chorister (1941-46)
