2017 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INSTRUMENTAL SUMMER CAMPS
The Symphony Guild of Decatur will offer at least seven (7) summer music camp scholarships. The value of each scholarship is up to $650 made payable to the camper upon receipt of an acceptance letter in Spring. Additional camp fees must be paid by camper.
Audition spots are limited and will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Band and string applicants may win both a private lesson scholarship and a summer music camp scholarship. Audition spots for previous scholarship winners will be limited, and preference will be given to those who have not previously won a scholarship.
Auditions are open to any 6th-11th grade student who meets any of the following criteria:
- resident of Macon County who plays in the school orchestra or band, if available or
- member of the Decatur Youth Symphony or
- home-schooled Macon County, Illinois student or
- previous camp scholarship winner not auditioning on the same instrument
Perform 1 solo piece, not to exceed 7 minutes, highlighting technical ability and musicality. Provide two copies of music for the judges with the measures numbered. Using an accompanist is required.
The judges require a photo and some information about you as they make the final decisions. Feel free to use the back of your form for additional extracurricular activities and biographical information. The photo may also be used for publicity purposes when winners are announced, so send a picture you would want to see in a newspaper or program.
The student is responsible for submitting the camp acceptance letter to Dee Keller, as representative of the SGOD by May 19. Winners can lose their scholarships should notice be delayed. An alternate winner will then be contacted to receive the scholarship.
