St. James Concert Series


This Sierra Music Scholarship Fund fund is made possible through the support of the St. James Concert Series, the Bach Festival, and from private individuals. The fund was created to provide financial aid to classical music students, ages 10 to 20, living in Tuolumne County and adjacent communities. Scholarship funds are available to both vocal and instrumental music students. A scholarship may be given, upon completion of a written application, teacher recommendation, and audition, to help further a student’s education and training in his or her particular musical field. Applicants should demonstrate dedication to the pursuit of advanced musical training and view music as an integral part of his or her future. Any scholarship monies awarded will be paid directly to the teacher 

Teachers and students should please carefully read the requirements page before filling out the application form. We encourage all of our local music teachers to recommend this worthwhile opportunity to their students.

Next year's auditions will be held at the St. James Episcopal Church on February 16, 2019. (Note: Date is subject to change.)

Applications must be received no later than  February 1, 2019.  (Note: Date is subject to change.)
