Heritage Chorale Marcie Hartman Mentoring/Scholarship for 2018


Heritage Chorale announces the availability of its Marcie Hartman scholarship for a high school junior or senior currently residing, attending high school or member of a youth chorus, in Oak Park, River Forest or Forest Park.

The student selected will sing with Heritage Chorale and then receive an award of $1000 to pursue further music study in the vocal arts in 2018.  To be eligible, the student must be in good academic standing and be recommended by his or her high school or youth choral director, voice teacher or other professional musician familiar with the applicant’s singing ability.  Two such recommendations are required.  The applicant also needs to submit a CD or DVD of a solo piece sung by him or her.  Finalists will audition for Heritage Chorale’s Artistic Director James Kallembach.

Applicants must commit to join and sing in the Heritage Chorale chorus for its spring semester beginning January 8, 2018, and ending with the spring concert performances on April 7 and 8, 2018.

Eligible applicants will be assessed based on singing experience, ability and quality, taking into consideration information included in the application, the recommendations submitted with it, the vocal performance CD/DVD and finalist auditions.  Consideration will also be given to the voice part needs of the chorus.

Applications must be submitted by November 30, 2017.  Auditions will be individually scheduled with finalists in December 2017 or January 2018.  Final conditional selection will be made shortly thereafter and before the beginning of Heritage Chorale’s spring semester in January 2018.   

Applications should be submitted to:
