The Parish Church of St. Nicolas, Witham is looking for a new Organ Scholar to take up the position from October 2021, initially for one year but with the possibility of a further year.

The new Organ Scholar is likely to be aged between 14 and 18, to be reasonably competent on the piano or electronic keyboard, and willing to make a commitment to the church over the period of the scholarship.

What we offer is the chance to learn the organ, with regular lessons given in church by an excellent teacher; to practise regularly on our superb Kenneth Tickell instrument; to work with the choir, training, leading and accompanying them; and to play regularly at services.

What the Organ Scholar has to do is attend organ lessons, choir practices and services regularly during term time; to practise regularly and to make progress on the organ; and to take advantage of the opportunities being offered.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in the St. Nicolas Church Organ Scholarship, please get in touch with the Director of Music, David Martin, as soon as possible.
