The West Bay Chorale established the Award for Excellence Program to promote the study of vocal music that will lead to performance or teaching. Accordingly, we have established an annual scholarship of for talented music major students. We will award a music scholarship to a vocalist who has been accepted, or who has plans to enroll at an accredited school of music, university, or conservatory of music. The award is based on merit and talent, both accomplished and potential.
Applicants will be invited to a private audition, and an accompanist will be provided. We will accept audition solos from NYSSMA Levels 4, 5, or 6 only. The audition repertoire must be memorized. The winner will be notified in May, and will be asked to perform at our spring concert in June.
The West Bay Chorale hopes that our scholarship program will encourage a deserving student to further his or her endeavors and bring the joy of music to succeeding generations!
Look for our 2016 Application in the Spring!
