Summer Scholarship Award

The Babylon Chorale is excited to present their 4th annual Summer Scholarship Award for high school singers. One high school student will be chosen through an online audition process to perform a solo of their choice at the Chorale’s June 2024 concert.

The winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to attend a music summer program of their choice.  In addition, their name will be featured in our June Concert program, and will be listed on our website. The winner will be invited to perform the same piece submitted for the application at the Chorale’s June concert. An accompanist will be provided for the performance, if needed.

Applications are open to students in grades 9 – 12. To apply, simply fill out the form below.

Your YouTube link should lead us to a video recording of your performance of a single song (art song, aria, or musical theater piece) with a live piano accompaniment. Please keep your video submission under six minutes.

Application Deadline is Friday, May 10th!
