The Royal School of Church Music in America’s Carolina Summer Training Course will celebrate its 20th anniversary in Raleigh, North Carolina July 13-19, 2015.
Held annually on the beautiful campus of Raleigh’s St. Mary’s School, this course is known for a high standard of musical excellence, organization, and gracious hospitality. We are pleased to welcome Mr. Simon Lole (http://www.simonlole.com) from the United Kingdom as this year’s music director.
The course is currently seeking applications for one organ scholar between age 18 and 25. This unique opportunity allows a currently matriculating student and aspiring church musician to grow in their knowledge of sacred music, choir training for children and adults, hymn playing, and organ accompaniment. Mr. Zachary Hemenway, a graduate of the Eastman School of Music and Yale University, will serve as our 2015 Course Organist. The organ scholar will learn valuable lessons by observing and participating in the daily activities of the course.
Please see the attached flyer and share with your local AGO chapters, colleagues and friends. The RSCM Carolina Course offers complimentary registration, housing, and meals for the duration of the course.
The organ scholar will be expected to attend all course-related activities and work closely with the music director and organist. Opportunities to play voluntaries, hymns and accompaniments are available.
