Choral Scholar Program

SCH’s Choral Scholar Program is designed to provide professional-level training and performance opportunities for high school students with outstanding vocal promise who intend to pursue a career in music. A Choral Scholarship enables a student to participate fully as a singing member of SCH and to receive partial tuition for private vocal instruction. Choral Scholars also receive written recommendations as they apply to conservatories and music schools. Additionally, they and their families are guided through the complex process of conservatory auditions.

Choral Scholars are selected through a competitive application process based on the following criteria:

  • Audition (including a prepared song, sight-reading, and aural skills testing)
  • Interviews with the Artistic Director and various committees
  • Musical experience
  • Recommendations
