Harry Christophers said: ‘Both Eamonn (Dougan) and I are looking forward to working with this new group of singers and Harry Bradford over the next year and seeing them grow into fine musicians.’
Applications for the 2019-20 choir will open in November 2018. Applications for conducting scholar will open in April or May 2019.
