St. Matthias continues the great choral tradition of Anglican Churches. We provide a magnificent opportunity today for experienced singers and instrumentalists to become part of this 900 year-old tradition of musical excellence. Choral Scholarships of up to $800 per academic year are offered by the Music Endowment Fund of St. Matthias Anglican to students enrolled at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, The University of Victoria, the Victoria Conservatory of Music or Camosun College. Four Scholarships $800 per student per academic year are available to Sopranos, Alto/Counter Tenors, Tenors and Basses who meet the musical qualifications and pass an audition. Moreover, opportunities exist throughout the year for choral scholars to augment their funding by singing additional paid services (weddings, funerals, special services) and concerts that fall outside the normal schedule of services.
