The Evanston Music Club and the North Shore Musicians Club have a rich history of
awarding countless scholarships to music students.
 

 

The 2021 Scholarship Competition

Will be a Virtual One

The 2021 Evanston Music Club and North Shore Musicians Club Scholarship Competition is open to students attending colleges in Evanston and neighboring communities in the Chicago area. Vocalists between the ages of 18 and 28 and all other musicians between 18 and 25 are eligible to submit an application to audition.

Those chosen to audition will be asked to submit a recorded performance via YouTube (unlisted) by April 19, 2021.

 

Contestants should prepare a 12-minute program and should draw from music of different periods or styles. Singers should include an aria from an opera or oratorio. Each applicant must provide an accompanist if needed.

FORMER WINNERS OF SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE EVANSTON MUSIC CLUB OR NORTH SHORE MUSICIANS CLUB ARE NOT ELIGIBLE.

 

In the past, scholarship winners have presented a final concert and attended a reception given by officers of the music clubs. A tentative date for this is Tuesday, May 11, 2021. We recognize that it may not be possible to have an in-person gathering in May but, if it is, winners would be required to attend. A decision on this will be made before the application deadline of March 19, 2021.

Deadline for receipt of applications: March 19, 2021

 

A fillable application form is available at https://www.evanstonmusicclub.org/application-2021.pdf.  This form can be downloaded, then completed and saved as a pdf named “last name first initial.pdf.”.  Return the application and a 1-2 page resume to Kathleen Rundell at [email protected]. The resume should include a summary of your music education, where you are or have been in school, name(s) of your teacher(s), and any awards or honors you have won and information on your tentative selections for audition.
