The Scholarship Awards Auditions offers a unique musical experience for students of piano, voice, and strings. Piano students from fourth to twelfth grades and string and vocal students ages nine to twenty-one will strive for a level of expertise where they will be rewarded with monetary prizes and presented in a live performance.
Students entering these auditions learn to develop a work ethic, preparing up to four pieces of music by memory (depending on the age group) and performing them before adjudicators. Entrants chosen from the preliminary round are then presented in a final round, which is a concert. At the end of the concert the winners are presented with scholarship awards.
The Scholarship Auditions go beyond developing a student’s talent. The preparation that goes into learning a piece of music and the experience of performing in a competitive environment will carry through to other aspects of their lives: academic, social, spiritual, and intellectual. In addition to rewarding students for their high levels of achievement, it also enables teachers to maintain high pedagogical standards.
