ALABAMA CHORAL PARTICIPATION SCHOLARSHIPS
These scholarships, in varying amounts, are awarded to incoming students whose standard of performance is commensurate with membership in the University of Alabama concert ensembles (University Singers and University Chorus), and who have a sincere interest in outstanding choral performance. The awards are based upon demonstration of a superior level of performing ability and upon applicants’ aptitude and desire for leadership. Auditions for these non-major scholarships will occur on Monday afternoon. The scholarships, in varying amounts, are awarded for the fall semester with the understanding that the student participates in a choral ensemble. They are allocated based on the respective talent level and needs of the university choirs, are renewable for up to four years, and are available to qualified students regardless of major. The students will be vocalization, pitch memory, and sightreading in this audition. These awards are for students who are coming to BAMA in the Fall of 2013, who want to sing in a choir, but who will not be music majors.
