BRONZE AND SILVER AWARDS
The scheme is designed to encourage singers to achieve a high standard of vocal technique and musicianship. It is intended that these awards are used in conjunction with the RSCM Voice for Life scheme.
The Voice for Life scheme enables singers to develop their musical skills and understanding within the context of their choir or singing group. The area awards scheme provides opportunities for that development to be affirmed beyond the singer's own church, through the RSCM's regional network.
Successful candidates are entitled to wear the prestigious medal, according to the standard achieved (The Bronze Award or The Silver Award). The Bronze medal is worn with green ribbon, the Silver medal with purple ribbon.
The awards are open to singers of all ages and denominations, and the syllabus has been carefully compiled with this in mind.
These will be held twice a year (usually in May and October). Successful candidates who so wish will be presented with their certificate at the RSCM Devon Area Festival Service.
Entries or enquiries should be sent to the Area awards administrator: Nicholas Brown
