In 2005 the South Auckland Choral Society embarked on a scheme to award singing scholarships
to talented and enthusiastic singers between the age of 16 and 25. We are proud to announce
that since 2005, over forty young people (mostly teenagers) have been awarded scholarships
of up to $1,000 each.
These were made possible by grants from a charitable organisation and have proved very popular
with students in the tertiary age group who often use their scholarships to further their
music education in many fields - music tuition, purchase of instruments etc. All recipients
must commit themselves to attending regular choir rehearsals on a Tuesday evening, and singing
in at least two of the major concerts during the year.
