Music Awards

Are you an organist, a singer/chorister or an instrumentalist of a very high standard? If you’d like to combine specialist musical experience with a Cambridge degree, you should consider applying for one of our Music Awards.

Choral and organ awards Student organists and choristers form a very important strand of the rich musical life in Cambridge, providing music for regular chapel services. They also perform in College concerts and some undertake tours in the UK or abroad. The awards vary from College to College but all include a small financial award and some support for music lessons. If you wish to be considered for an Organ Scholarship, you must submit your application for the Scheme by 1 September 2015. If you’d like to apply for a Choral Award, the application deadline is 15 February 2016. Further details of the Choral Award and Organ Scholarship Schemes are available on the Music Awards website.


Instrumental Awards Scheme The Instrumental Awards Scheme enables gifted musicians to reach a high standard of performance in chamber music. Successful students are Award-holders for a year, and receive a small financial award (an ‘exhibition’), professional coaching of their ensemble, masterclasses, recital opportunities and a subsidy for instrumental lessons. Players of violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, French horn or piano are eligible to apply. Associate membership of the Scheme is open to players of trumpet, horn, trombone and tuba, and other standard orchestral instruments used in chamber repertory (eg double bass, harp). A minimum of Distinction at Grade 8 of the Associated Board or similar is required, though please note that most successful candidates are of Diploma standard.

If you’re made an offer of an academic place and wish to apply for an Instrumental Award, you must submit the application form (available online) to your College by 28 February 2016. See individual College websites for information about the musical activities undertaken and enjoyed by their Music Award-holders. Information about other music-making opportunities can be found on p16.
