Over an intensive seven-day period, 95 residential students will sample life as a Choral Scholar at the University of Cambridge. They will take part in a range of choral training activities, including individual singing lessons, workshops and both formal and informal performances in spectacular settings. The Cambridge Choral Courses attract a wider range of students looking to perform music at a high level, many of whom will go on to explore a musical education at the University of Cambridge.
