The Hopewell Valley Chorus is accepting applications for their Choral Conducting Scholar Program. Applicants should be of high school age and have a strong interest in choral conducting or music education.
Accepted Scholars will be given dedicated rehearsal time to teach a piece of music to the Chorus. Each Scholar will have private score study sessions with Dr. Heather Mitchell, Artistic Director.
At the conclusion of the season, Scholars will be invited to conduct their chosen piece at the Chorus’s holiday or spring concert. Scholars will be expected to join the chorus for the full season, with dues waived; there will be no charge for the program.
To apply, please email an essay (approximately one page) that details your experience with choral music, choral conducting and your career aspirations. Essays can be sent to Dr. Heather Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to email with any questions.
