Scholarship for Private Instrumental Music Lessons
Each year, the Dearborn Symphony offers scholarships to deserving students who will be entering grades 8-12 for the upcoming school year.
Auditions will be held on May 7, 2012, at the First Presbyterian Church.
Deadline for application is April 25, 2012
Applicants must be public or private Dearborn or Dearborn Heights school students or home-schooled.
Performers on all standard orchestral instruments, with the exception of piano, are eligible to participate.
The scholarship winners are honored and given their awards at a Dearborn Symphony concert in the fall.
Several generous service clubs, corporations, private foundations and individuals have contributed funds to allow us to award several thousand dollars of awards each year.
Scholarship competition criteria include:
- First ratings at the Michigan School Solo and Ensemble Festival
- A worthy solo audition on a symphonic instrument
- Recommendations from private music instructors
- Being a student in a Dearborn or Dearborn Heights public, private or home school.
Musicians of the Dearborn Symphony serve as judges of the competition.
All forms for this competition are available and can be downloaded from the Youth link at the Dearborn Symphony website at www.dearbornsymphony.org.
