Choral Scholars and Choral Fellows Program
The Rochester Oratorio Society’s Choral Scholars and Choral Fellows Program welcomes vocal music educators and their students to sing with the Rochester Oratorio Society for one concert cycle of the year. Participating teachers can apply for professional development credit, if available, through their individual schools.
Choral Scholars — High-school level voice students
Choral Fellows — Choir Directors and Music Educators
Rochester area music teachers and church choir directors are cordially invited to sing choral masterworks with the Rochester Oratorio Society for only a short time commitment. These teachers are encouraged to bring with them one (or more!) of their experienced high school students to share in the experience.
The ROS Choral Scholars and Choral Fellows Program has flourished since 2008. Our past Choral Fellows teach at the elementary, middle and high school levels, in both public and private schools. They come from as far away as Orleans and Livingston Counties.
How does the program work?
Select the concert cycle in which you would like to participate, attend all Monday rehearsals (one excused absence is acceptable), and sing in the final performance(s).
How can I apply?
The ROS offers high quality editions of choral works for use by schools and community ensembles. These works provide a graded approach to preparing vocalists for choral success. Instructional information and performance suggestions are included. Learn more.
