Harry Coles Organ Scholar

Perfect opportunity for a gap-year or postgraduate organist to develop his/her musical skills in a unique environment

Harry Coles Organ Scholar

The Cathedral is offering an Organ Scholarship, valued at £7,000 starting in September for the academic year 2018/2019.   

The Harry Coles Organ Scholarship was founded in the year 2000 and later endowed following the death of Harry Coles, a former chorister and organ scholar at the Cathedral who died in 2006. Organ scholars are appointed for one or two years in their role and many past scholars have gone on to become Organists and Directors of Music at other Cathedrals and Chapels.

Applicants should be in sympathy with the aims and objectives of the Christian Church and the Anglican tradition.

Southwark Cathedral aims to be an equal opportunities employer.
