A limited number of performance scholarships are available for the choral ensembles. Auditions for these scholarships, which range from $1,250 for first-year recipients to as much as $2,500 for experienced members of the Chorus, take place in March and April for the following year. We prefer to hear these auditions during the April "Accepted Students Days," which are April 5 and 6 (2014), and April 12 and 13, but can accomodate a limited number during the March "Accepted Student Days," on March 8-9. If this is not possible, individual audition times can usually be arranged on campus, with April 23 (2014) as the cut-off date to audition for a performance scholarship for the 2014-15 academic year. You do not need to be a music major to be eligible for a performance scholarship and the majority of recipients are non-majors.
Requirements for Scholarship Recipients:
Auditions will take place in Dr. Powell's office, MacAlister 1037; this is in the Mandell Theater lobby. Practice rooms are available for warming up on the second floor of MacAlister Hall. MacAlister Hall is on the SE corner of Chestnut Street and 33rd, behind the Chestnut Square building.
