Young Singer Bursaries

 

Birmingham Bach Choir is again offering young singers bursaries for good voices to sing with us and develop their talent, nurtured by Paul Spicer.

This year we have two bursary students: Barney Walsh & Alex Lindsay

November 2017 Town Hall Birmingham. Bach’s B Minor Mass

A bit about one of our current bursary singers:


Barney, 22,  from Portsmouth, is studying politics at Birmingham University. He says he’s been singing ‘for as long as I can remember’ and aims to go on to a conservatoire to study opera.

 

’To be a part of the Birmingham Bach Choir has been an excellent experience for me. It has provided a platform to sing a vast array of powerful music, from periods I had not 'worked' much within before, and for that I am very grateful. Furthermore, to work with someone as acclaimed and meticulous as Paul Spicer has been superb, and I believe it has greatly contributed to enhancing my own musicianship.’ (Barney)
