Don Bosco Prep’s Chapel Concerts this week announced its third Young Artists’ Scholarship Competition to celebrate, recognize and reward the talent, commitment and discipline of young performers.
This competition offers high school musicians an opportunity to perform during the 2012-2013 Season of Don Bosco Prep’s Chapel Concerts.
The first place winner will also receive a $1,000 in scholarship money to be used towards music education. The 2012-2013 Young Artists’ Scholarship Competition is open to United Stated citizens and legal non-citizens who are full-time high school students, who reside in New Jersey and who show proficiency in vocal or instrumental music. Solo artists and ensembles performing in all styles of music will be considered.
Interested participants are asked to submit an application with a preliminary audition DVD by January 1, 2013.
Twenty-five finalists will be selected to audition live and will be notified by mail by January 31, 2013. Finals auditions will be held in on Saturday, March 9, 2013 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., when applicants will perform the same repertoire submitted for the preliminary round. Applicants will be judged by a panel of experts on talent, technique, musicianship, skill, interpretation, presentation, presence. Competitors compete against a standard of excellence, rather than against each other. Performers should bring their own accompanist.
Of the twenty-five finalists, ten winners will be selected to perform at Don Bosco Prep’s Chapel Concert of Saturday, April 20, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.
