The Choral Course Foundation was founded by Ralph Allwood MBE in 2012, with the aim of providing opportunities for young and capable singers from disadvantaged backgrounds.


The Foundation’s key purpose is to provide bursaries for enthusiastic singers who wish to attend one of the renowned Junior Choral Courses or Eton Choral Courses, but do not have the financial means to do so. Alumni of the Eton Choral Courses include such celebrated classical musicians as Edward

Gardner, Iestyn Davies and Sarah Fox.
