The Choir of St Michael at the North Gate is considered among the best liturgical choirs in Oxford, and during the University of Oxford vacation, Choral Evensong is offered, with opportunities for serious solo singing. The Director of Music welcomes applications for Choral Clerkships and subscription to the deputy list. Auditions are held throughout the year, and current Choral Clerkship holders are reviewed annually. Sight-reading is essential.
