Description

The Choral Scholars ministry offers a $2000 (yearly) scholarship position to four local college or university students for the 2019-2020 academic year.  The positions allow students the experience of singing with an accomplished traditional church choir and director.  Scholars will act as section leaders within the choir.  The church benefits from their musical skills and expertise and the program helps them to better develop their choral background.  The position offers students the venue to sing as soloists and as a quartet in addition to the opportunity to teach and conduct the choir.

Requirements

Choral Scholars must be actively enrolled in a music degree program at a local college or university.  Students do not need to be Lutheran to apply.  Participation requires full participation in the Chancel Choir, which includes a weekly rehearsal on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:00 p.m. and Sunday morning warm-up (8:00) and worship (8:30-9:30).  The schedule for the 2019-2020 year begins on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 and will follow the academic calendar of the student’s college or university with regard to breaks and time off.  During the spring semester, there will be additional sung services including Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and two services on Easter Sunday.  During this schedule, absences from 4 rehearsals and 4 services will be permitted.  If more absences are required and a substitute cannot be found, a deduction from the scholarship amount will be discussed.

Application

Applications should be emailed to varozek@gmail.com.  A resume’ may be attached if available.  In person auditions and interviews will be held.

Form of Compensation

Choral Scholars are awarded a $2000 grant for their service to Reformation Lutheran Church.  This will be paid in eight regular installments of $250 over the course of the year.
