Are you a young person who loves to sing? Would you like to improve your skills, have more performance opportunities, and earn $1000? Apply to become a choral scholar with Tauranga’s Scholars Baroque Aotearoa Chamber Choir!
The Scholars Baroque Aotearoa Scholarship Scheme is intended to leave young singers with a real sense of achievement that they can draw on throughout their lives. The scholarship recipient will have the chance to experience singing and music making in a semi-professional setting with a chamber choir. Our hope is to kindle a passion for choral music and give students a positive, successful, and lasting impression of this beautiful music.
Applicants may be male or female; preference will be given to those between 16 and 30 years old. Applicants must be able to commit to a full year of Scholars Baroque Aotearoa rehearsals and performances.
The principal reward or benefit will be the intellectual and musical rewards of studying, rehearsing and performing choral music in the company of competent fellow musicians under the guidance of a qualified conductor. A secondary reward will be financial, the scholarship funds of being awarded at the completion of the year.
This is a golden opportunity for good musicians who have fine voices, commitment to be part of a close-knit team, and who wish to develop first class sight-reading skills.
