REMINDER-SIGN UP BY FRIDAY! Ever wish you could study voice privately or attend a summer music camp (at no cost)? Voice Lesson/Summer Camp Scholarship auditions are coming up on Tuesday, June 4th, 2018 at 7 pm in the choir room. We have 26 scholarships to award, each valued at $300! 

Next week, we will be teaching you both a classical and a musical theater song and you can use either of these at the audition (if you are currently studying private voice, you can sing a song you’ve worked on in your lessons as well). If we do not get enough new people to sign up for the audition, we will open them up to people that have had the scholarship already (this happened last year)!

 

Requirements:

Upon acceptance of the scholarship, the student must attend District Solo & Ensemble or Musical Theatre Festival during the following school year, or an approved Music Camp during the summer immediately following the audition (summer of 2018). Students may use scholarship money to pay all lesson costs and any registration and accompanist fees.

All money must be used in the year following acceptance; money not used in this time frame reverts to the Choir Association General Fund.

Further, if you choose to study private voice must regularly attend voice lessons and demonstrate your gratitude by working hard, preparing music with integrity and caring, meet deadlines set by your teacher, showing up to lessons on time, remembering when your lessons are and attending them without being asked or reminded. Voice students should not complain or whine about the work that is studying voice.

Students who choose to attend a summer music camp should be timely, attend every day, work hard and be committed, go above and beyond, seek ways to be of help and attend the concert(s), performing to the very best of your ability. Scholarship students should not complain or whine about the work that is involved in a summer music camp.

If/when necessary, both parent(s) and/or student will assure that transportation to and from lessons/summer camps/solo and ensemble are arranged in advance.

YOU MUST SIGN UP BY FRIDAY, MAY 31st (that’s next week Friday)!

YOUR SONG MUST BE SUNG FOR MEMORY FOR SCHOLARSHIP AUDITIONS!

Join this international touring cast July 9th – 13th at Mona Shores High School for 35 hours of high-energy, comprehensive performing arts camp. Students will experience everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more.

Each camp culminates in a 2-hour performance for the community. By learning a show in just 5 days, students are able to learn teamwork, discover their individual potential, and walk away with a huge sense of accomplishment at the end of the week, all in an encouraging and positive atmosphere!

Cost: $219. Save $15 per camper when you sign up multiple students on the same registration. Limited scholarships are available, simply register and just before the payment page there is an option to submit a scholarship application.
