St James’ church in Clacton are offering the chance for children with a passion for singing and music to join their choir, led by choirmaster, Steven Blomfield.
There are many benefits of joining a choir, including but not limited to: team-work, self-discipline, self-confidence, taking responsibility and increased concentration.
The church has the opportunity to award 5 scholarships, worth £750 each, to children in the choir each year. These scholarships are awarded to those who demonstrate a commitment to the choir and a desire to deepen their musical understanding. Scholarships are to cover a weekly 30 minute music tuition lesson for the year. This can be in any instrument of the child’s choice.
