Commonwealth Scholars’ Choir

To mark and celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, the CYO has recently established a new choir: Commonwealth Scholars’ Choir.

Nationals of any of the 53 countries of the Commonwealth who are recipients, both currently and those who are now part of the Alumni, of any of the following Scholarships are eligible to apply to join the Commonwealth Scholars’ Choir.

Commonwealth Scholars from across the Commonwealth who take part in the CYO performances and recording all very much enjoyed the opportunity to meet and sing with other Commonwealth Scholarship students.
