Don Bosco Preparatory High School is sponsoring its fourth Young Artists’ Scholarship Competition to celebrate, recognize and reward the talent, commitment and discipline of young performers. This competition offers area high school musicians an opportunity to perform during the 2013-2014 season of Don Bosco Prep’s Chapel Concerts. The first place winner will also receive $1,000 scholarship to be used toward music education. The contest is open to U.S. citizens and legal non-citizens, who are full-time high school students, reside in New Jersey and who show proficiency in vocal or instrumental music. Solo artists and ensembles performing in all styles of music will be considered.
Participants are asked to submit an application with a preliminary audition DVD by Jan. 15, 2014. A total of 25 finalists will be selected to audition live and will be notified by mail by Jan. 31, 2014. Finals auditions will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014 between10 a.m. and 1 p.m., when applicants will perform the same repertoire submitted for the preliminary round. Applicants will be judged by a panel of experts on talent, technique, musicianship, skill, interpretation, presentation and presence. Competitors compete against a standard of excellence, rather than against each other. Performers should bring their own accompanist. Of finalists, 10 winners will be selected to perform at Don Bosco Prep’s Chapel Concert on April 12, 2014.
