The First Scholarship

This fund is administered by a committee of the Black Rock Philharmonic and will help cover the costs of a ticket. The decision will be based on the musician’s portfolio, the need of the orchestra, seniority within our group, the level of dedication and musicianship. To apply for this scholarship and more information, please email: scholarship (at) blackrockphilharmonic (dot) org

The Second Scholarship

This scholarship receiver will be determined by our Conductor, and the decision will be solely based on our musical program’s specific instruments need.
