News Story ~ RSCM Awards Service 2014

November 30, 2014

RSCM Choral Evensong 29 Nov 14 024.JPGThe annual RSCM Awards service was held this year in St Gall’s Church, Carnalea on Saturday 29 September. It was nice to be joined by friends and families, in congratulating candidates, who were successful in the examinations of the Bronze and Silver awards of the RSCM Voice for Life chorister training scheme.

It is heartening that we are able to offer these awards to those who are keen to recognise their skills and abilities and to have them tested by the high standards set by the RSCM. The work that these musicians do, in preparing for these examinations, is to be rightly celebrated. In addition to performing a variety of music, through singing voice, they are tested in musicianship skills, aural and sight reading ability, theoretical, historical and repertoire knowledge, and on their understanding of liturgy, the Church’s Year and the place of music within the liturgy.

We were delighted that Rosemary Symth was able to conduct and Stephen Hamill played the organ during service of Choral Evensong at which the awards were presented by Bishop Harold Miller, bishop of Down and Dromore.
