Each year, the Appleton MacDowell Male Chorus grants scholarships to graduating seniors who are aspiring to attend an institution of higher education. These scholarships are granted to young male soloists who demonstrate proficiency in singing and musical presentation. The audition process follows general music competition criteria.
A panel of three Chorus members will judge the competition. Ratings are based on tone, intonation, rhythmic accuracy, interpretation, and diction. See the application form for more details.
It is intended that we will give three awards of varying amounts based on the scores that each singer achieves. Last year, the first place award was $1,000. The award amounts are established each year by the board of directors of the Appleton MacDowell Male Chorus.
Applications for the 2019 scholarship competition must be received no later than March 15th, 2019. Auditions for the scholarship will be held Monday March 18, 2019 at Xavier High School, beginning at 6:00PM. Please contact the scholarship chairman, Kevin Weber, for more details and to request an application.
