BBC Radio 3’s Choral Evensong is to be broadcast live from the Old Royal Naval College Chapel on Wednesday 16 September.
As part of the service, the Old Royal Naval College Chapel Choir, including several Trinity Laban students and choral scholars, will perform works by Howells, Tavener, Victoria and Leighton. They will be conducted by their esteemed director, Ralph Allwood and accompanied by organist James Grainger.
As the only conservatoire of music with a chapel collegiate choir, Trinity Laban provides a unique, well-rounded musical education to singers at the start of their professional lives. A number of annual choral scholarships are available, offered in conjunction with the Dame Susan Morden Trust and the trustees of the Old Royal Naval College Chapel. Scholars gain choral singing opportunities comparable to that of an Oxbridge college, alongside all the benefits of a dedicated performance course in atop conservatoire. Trinity Laban choral scholars regularly go on to work with the UK’s top ensembles, church choirs and chamber ensembles.
Choral Evensong featuring the Old Royal Naval College Chapel Choir is broadcast at 3.30pm on Wednesday 16 September, and repeated at 3.00pm on Sunday 20 September. Anyone wishing to attend the service is asked to arrive early, so they can be seated in the chapel in good time.
