Scholarship

Step 4: Finalists Interview, Live Audition & Feedback Session
April 6th, 2024

Applicants that advance to the interview stage will be contacted no later than Monday, April 1st, 2024 to schedule an finalist session. These sessions will take place in-person on Saturday, April 6th, 2024 in 15-minute time slots. 

Live Audition & Feedback

A panel of judges comprised of current and former members of the Sacramento Master Singers and/or past scholarship winners will hear applicants perform their audition piece and give feedback. 

An accompanist will be provided, but if the selection features an accompaniment that cannot be easily sight-read, the finalist should have their own accompanist join them in attendance and performance.

Interview

SMS judges will ask a series of questions about the following:

  1. Current and previous choral experience
  2. Other activities outside of choral music, both musical and academic
  3. Leadership skills
  4. Importance of choral music in your life, both currently and in the future

Following the in-person sessions...

There may be an opportunity to showcase your talents!

The Sacramento Master Singers will NOT be hosting YouthSing! this year. There is still potential for one or more of the overall top applicants to sing with the Sacramento Master Singers, which will be announced.
