Each year, the Music Committee gives a $500 Martha Welch Award to a young musician in our church. An outside judge will evaluate the contestants. This year, auditions will be held Thursday April 19, 2018 at 5.30 pm at the church. Applicants must be currently enrolled in our RE program and have studied music formally for a minimum of one year. Each applicant must submit a written application consisting of a thoughtful statement by the student explaining why they are interested in music and for what they might use the prize (music lessons, camp, instruments, etc.).
Applications are due by April 12 to Susan Conant at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off in person to the church office. Auditions must be in person. The most recent recipient of the award is not eligible to apply.
