High School Choral Apprentice Program

As part of Musica Sacra’s ongoing commitment to music education outreach, we are pleased to introduce our new High School Choral Apprentice Program. This six-week program expands upon our existing Conducting Apprenticeship program with University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and collaborations with local student ensembles.

Participation is free!

A limited number of spaces are available for local junior & senior high school students with demonstrated musical talent, self discipline, and a passion for choral music who might not otherwise have the opportunity to perform masterworks of choral literature with a live orchestra. Students must be nominated by their high school music teacher, or submit an application along with a letter of recommendation.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Application materials are due no later than Friday, February 3, 2023 to participate. 

Students participating in this year’s program will learn and perform Joseph Haydn’s The Creation, Parts 1 & 2 (in English) alongside members of our chorus under the baton of our Music Director, Dr. L. Brett Scott. In addition, students will also receive individualized vocal coaching and/or small group instruction from designated mentors at each rehearsal. Access to online practice aids and sheet music (loaned) will be provided.
