Applications for Lithgow City Orchestra’s 2019 scholarships are now open.
The organisation stated that, due to a generous grant from Lithgow Council of $2700, Lithgow City Orchestra is able to offer three scholarships each worth $900, which is a very attractive offer for musicians who play an orchestral instrument.
The orchestra is particularly seeking string players.
Applicants need to own their own instrument, able to read music and willing to attend fortnightly rehearsals and scheduled performances.
Subject to satisfactory attendance and progress, scholarships valued at $900 will be awarded to reimburse private tuition fees in terms two, three and four.
This is a wonderful opportunity to improve musicianship skills and gain enjoyment playing in an orchestral ensemble.
Applications close March 30, 2019. Selection will be by interview and audition. For more information contact Gustaw Szelski on 0409 304 977 or Peter Avery on 6352 3059.
