Santa Barbara Music Club Offering 2013 Scholarship Awards

Source: Suzanne Duffy for the Santa Barbara Music Club

The Santa Barbara Music Club (SBMC) has announced the availability of applications for its Music Scholarship Awards for students pursuing a music performance education. Open to talented instrumental and vocal students from Santa Barbara County, these auditions present aspiring students with the opportunity for financial support in their music endeavors as donated by generous SBMC supporters.

Instrumental applicants are eligible through age 25, and vocal applicants through age 30. As of 2012, the SBMC scholarship program also allows for applications from students pursuing a jazz emphasis of study. Student applicants with a jazz emphasis must nonetheless present a classical genre piece as one of their two audition selections.

Scholarship eligibility is limited to residents of Santa Barbara County. Applicants must currently be studying in, or have graduated from, schools within the County of Santa Barbara (including home schooling). Students coming from outside the county to attend a college in Santa Barbara County are not eligible. Post office box addresses are not acceptable.

For the 2012 Music Scholarship season, the SBMC Scholarship Committee panel heard 44 students between the ages of 9 and 24 — from pianists, vocalists, strings, winds and brass — and awarded $17,000 in funds to 25 of the student applicants. In addition to the monetary award, the scholarship awardees receive honorary SBMC membership for the following school/concert year.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
