The Asheville Community Band is pleased to offer full and half scholarships for Western North Carolina instrumental music students (excluding pianists and vocalists) to attend a summer camp of the student’s choosing. There is an incomplete list of summer music camps available on the ACB website.
Applications for the middle and high school sponsorships are due on May 1, 2019. Recipients for these scholarships will be chosen in May 2019 and will be announced at our Memorial Day holiday concert to be performed at the Folk Arts Center in Asheville on Sunday, May 27, 2019 at 3:30 PM. Students due not have to be present to win, however your attendance is highly encouraged! Scholarships will be provided to selected students and will cover all or part of the tuition, optional campus housing, activities, meals, etc.
Awarding of scholarships will be contingent upon the student’s acceptance by the Music Camp. Scholarship funds will be deposited directly with the Camp in the student’s name. In the event that any scholarship recipient cannot attend the Music Camp, alternate(s) will be awarded the scholarship(s).
