The RSCM is an educational charity dedicated to raising standards and promoting music in every style of Christian worship and every denomination. Since 1927 it has grown into an organisation of over 11,000 members and affiliates worldwide, who are offered unique support and guidance through local and national events and publications. We promote a programme of educational events for organists, choir trainers and singers of all abilities and experience, the highlight of which is the annual Area Festival. Our Dean's and Bishop's Chorister Awards operate alongside the RSCM's Voice for Life scheme and are open to singers of all ages. For information about the RSCM's international work please visit www.rscm.com
