Orchestra Accepting Scholarship Applications
The Moore Philharmonic Orchestra is now accepting applications for 2012 student scholarships.
Past recipients have applied for scholarships to pay for private lessons, attend summer music camps and purchase higher quality instruments.
Applicants must be current students in public, private or accredited home schools in Moore County or be an active member of the Moore Philharmonic Orchestra, and must not have reached the age of 21 by Dec. 31, 2011.
Completed applications must be received by the orchestra no later than March 29, 2012. Candidates will be required to prepare a short audition piece of their choice on April 19, 2012 (candidates will be notified of audition times as soon as possible).
Scholarships will be announced at the spring concert at Owens Auditorium on the campus of Sandhills Community College on April 22.
Applications and more information are available on the orchestra's website, www.mporchestra.com.
Since 2005, the orchestra has served the Sandhills community supporting music appreciation and education.
It provides an outlet for approximately 50 volunteer musicians to perform varied programs of orchestral literature. Members include adults and talented college, high school and middle school students.
It is a nonprofit organization and relies entirely on individual and business contributions to cover operating and general expenses and to support a scholarship fund benefiting Moore County music students.
