Bennington County Choral Society Scholarship Program

Celebrating Youth in Music

We have been encouraging young people in our community, and those in nearby New York and Massachusetts, to continue in their musical careers for over 40 years! Many of our scholarship winners have gone on to do just that and have performed on Broadway and much more.

The Bennington County Choral Society is preparing for its 2023 scholarship
auditions. 
Auditions will be held on Friday, March 31st at 6PM. A prize of $500 will go to the scholarship recipient(s). The purpose of the scholarship is to provide financial support for the continued study of music. The scholarship awards are based on a competitive audition.

The auditions will be held at the Second Congregational Church, Hillside Street, Bennington, VT on Friday, March 31st, 2023 beginning at 6pm. Musicians will be notified of their performance time prior to the competition. Applicants are asked to dress in performance-appropriate attire.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Benjamin April at benapril27@gmail.com.
