NEW! Congratulations to the following 2019-2020 Scholarship Recipients and thanks to all that auditioned! Just for showing up and going for it, you should be proud!
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.
