Congratulations to Year 13 Music Scholar Jago Carroll on being awarded a gap year choral scholarship at Portsmouth Cathedral, which includes work as a music department assistant at Portsmouth Grammar School.
As a Choral Scholar, Jago will be singing alto in the cathedral choir alongside the professional singers (lay clerks) and choristers in daily services, concerts and recordings.
Choral music thrives at Worth and Jago is a member of Worth’s Schola Cantorum (our school choir of more than 50 singers), our auditioned Chamber Choir of senior singers and he is also an A Level Music student
Worth’s choirs have produced a good number of students who have gone on to choral scholarships and then on to become professional singers, including a former member of the Sistine Chapel Choir. Jago is also an accomplished oboist, having achieved a distinction in his grade 8 oboe exam earlier this year and is now taking the diploma. Prior to coming to Worth, Jago was himself a cathedral chorister at Westminster Cathedral where he sang for daily services, so he is already well prepared for life as part of a cathedral choir.
Well done Jago.
