The Edgecumbe Choir Scholarship Scheme started in 2023 under the Musical Directorship of Chalium
Poppy, for high school, polytechnic, or university students.
Around the world choral music has been losing popularity compared with other forms of easier and instant
entertainment, which has had an impact on the number of school-leavers joining community choirs.
Choral music immerses students in a unique soundscape that can only be experienced in a choir.
The Edgecumbe Choir Scholarship recipient (hereafter referred to as “young scholar”) will have the
chance to experience singing and music making in a semi-professional setting with a choir. Our hope is to
kindle a passion for choral music and give students a positive, successful, and lasting impression of this beautiful music.
Another benefit of Scholarship Scheme will be finacial, the Scholarship funds being awarded at the completion of the year.
