2019 SCHOLARSHIPS FOR INSTRUMENTAL SUMMER CAMPS
The Symphony Guild of Decatur will offer at least four (4) summer music camp scholarships. The value of each scholarship is up to $800 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 may be limited, and preference will be given to those who have not previously won a scholarship.
Audition spots will be filled on first come, first served basis. Those applications arriving after auditions have been filled will be added to a waiting list in the order received.
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
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. Millikin student pianists will be available at no cost if desired. Please mark your application if you want to use a Millikin piano student accompanist.
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 biographical information and additional musical activities. 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 3. Failure to do so will result in the loss of the scholarship. An alternate winner will then be contacted to receive the scholarship.
