Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, ECCF is pleased to award an ECCF Scholarship to one qualified viola and cello applicant. One winner on each instrument will receive a $2000 scholarship to attend Elm City ChamberFest in 2018.
Viola and cello students aged 14 – 18 who will have completed the 8th grade by June of 2018 are eligible to audition. Students must currently be enrolled in weekly private lessons and participate in a weekly ensemble program, either at school or with a professional coach or conductor.
Please read the following list of audition requirements carefully. Students that do not fulfill all of the repertoire requirements will not be considered. Live auditions are strongly encouraged. However, should it not be possible for you attend a live audition, please submit a recording via our Audition Dropbox.
