Merit Scholarship Ensembles are formed within the Young Artists (Saturday) Academy and are awarded each year, based on merit as demonstrated in the fall semester auditions. Students selected for these scholarships will be placed within advanced chamber ensembles in the Academy and serve as ACMC ambassadors at Synchronism concerts, community outreach, receptions, and other events throughout the year. Applicants for all scholarship positions are auditioned each fall and are required to commit to both the Fall & Spring semesters of the Young Artists Academy. Scholarship positions will be re-auditioned each year. Each scholarship winner will be assessed a $120 administration fee for the year.
All instrumentalists are welcome to audition for these merit ensembles. Chamber ensembles will be determined after all auditions have been heard.
