Liverpool Hope University has introduced nine music scholarship opportunities, which together are worth more than £40,000.
The nine scholarships will be:
• Four vocal scholarship for soprano, alto (male or female), tenor and bass
• Four string scholarships for two violins, viola and cello
• One joint organ scholarship (together with Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral)
The scholarships are for high level tuition, free accommodation and exposure to excellent performance opportunities. For the string scholarships, students will be tutored members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Male vocal scholars will have opportunities to perform with the Metropolitan Cathedral choir. Meanwhile the organ scholarship offers a student the chance to be tutored by the Organist and Director of Music at the Metropolitan Cathedral.
The scholarship holders will also participate actively in the musical life of Liverpool Hope through our various choirs and orchestras which regularly perform at official University events and in the community.
Successful students would begin their studies at Liverpool Hope from 2016, the scholarship does not cover university fees.
