James Litton Grant for Choral Training

Honoring one of the co-founders of the Association of Anglican Musicians, the James Litton Grant for Choral Training will be given to an AAM member for the purpose of further developing their own choir training skills, building a chorister program for young singers, or for another endeavor which lives into the spirit of creating excellent choral experiences within the Episcopal Church. A decision will be announced by April 15, with $3,500 awarded to the 2023 Litton Grant recipient.

This program is intended for an AAM member who is working as an Episcopal church musician, with funds being used to further develop skills in choir training, such as:

  • coaching with an AAM mentor who is an experienced choral conductor
  • coursework which aid in developing chorister programs for young singers
  • towards a sabbatical that includes significant study of choral programs
  • an academic project which focuses on a particular aspect of the Anglican choral tradition

Applications should be received by March 15, 2023. The grant will be awarded by April 15, 2023 and must be used within one year after the award is given. Applicants must be a member in good standing of the Association of Anglican Musicians.

The successful applicant commits to confirming (in the form of a written report) how the grant money was used, and identifies some of the ways that this additional training has benefitted them, their choirs, and the church.
