Sangre de Cristo Chorale seeks college-bound 2014 high school graduates dedicated to vocal music. The mailing deadline is April 1 and seniors are encouraged to apply for a $500 scholarship awarded to students dedicated to singing.
The Hastings Smith Memorial Vocal Scholarship is among the musical education opportunities offered by the Santa Fe-based Sangre de Cristo Chorale to enrich the lives of young people in the region.
The chorale, now in its 36th year, awards the scholarship to two applicants per year who want to excel in singing. Strong candidates will demonstrate a strong past achievement and future interest in singing, although intent to major in vocal music is not necessary. The award is based on strength of application and is intended to encourage continuing pursuit of vocal music.
To be considered, graduating seniors must submit a letter of application describing the following:
• musical experience and accomplishments
• goals in pursuing further study of vocal music
• plans in using the award to assist in vocal music progress
Applicants should also include their name, grade, age, phone number, address, current musical mentor and phone number to contact as a reference in discussing the student’s application. All applications must be mailed or emailed no later than April 1. The mailing address is Sangre de Cristo Chorale, P.O. Box 4462, Santa Fe, NM 87502, Attention: Scholarship;
or email to priscilla.
