Organ Scholarship 2019-2020

The London Oratory is famous for its rich organ and choral culture in the service of the classic traditions of Roman Catholic liturgy. It has three choirs and a music staff of four (including organ scholar).

The Pettman Organ Scholarship, is for one year from September 2019, but can be extendable by mutual agreement to two. It is designed for a student who is on, or has just completed a postgraduate course, though an outstanding undergraduate may also be considered. Open to Catholics and non-Catholics.
