The Venice Chorale has a commitment to educational outreach. Each season, 5 students are selected to receive a $700 scholarship to participate in the Venice Chorale's Apprentice Program. The funds they receive are to be used for their continued education in the music field. Through the years, several of these students have gone on to careers in music, many to enjoy singing in community ensembles, all benefitting from their experience with the Venice Chorale. The more "mature" adults in the Venice Chorale have commented: "the energy they bring to the reheasals and performances is fantastic!"
How to Apply
High school students who are interested in the apprentice program apply when they audition at the beginning of the chorale season for the Concert Choir. All students interested in singing with the Concert Choir are encouraged to apply.
Students rehearse and perform with the Concert Choir and also have the opportunity to perform with Chamber Chorus at the discretion of the Artistic Director. The apprentice program pays a monthly stipend for additional private lessons or other musical opportunities. Concert attire is the responsibility of the student.
