We recognize that Burning Man has been a financial challenge for many of our musicians in the past. Inlined with that, we have designed two scholarship funds:

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.

Music Program for BRP-2018

(Below are PDF’s and links to JW Peppers site for download)

Music! To download music from JW Pepper, go to JWPepper.com and “Login” to create an account:

https://www.jwpepper.com/sheet-music/order/co_register.jsp

Once you’ve done that, you can start adding the individual parts for your instrument to your shopping cart from the “E-Print” logoed parts section on each page—and after you’ve checked out, you’ll be able to download and print out everything you ordered.

Total cost of the individual instrument parts for each player is $15.49 if the math was done right. Print the music and practice before you come to the Playa.

As a member of Black Rock Philharmonic, we will have custom BRP swag, and a catered 3 course dinner for players and a friend/spouse/particular fan/groupie after Wednesday performance.  And love, lots of love!

Note, it can be 115 degree heat, and or gusty wind storms on the Playa—even simple things can be hard. Which is what will make this magical and why people cry when we do it right.  Hugs to you all!
