Wye Choral Scholars
The first of our programs is the Wye Choral Scholars, in which a select, auditioned ensemble of Eastern Shore middle and high school students receive professional vocal training and rehearse and sing advanced music from diverse historical and cultural traditions.
The annual cost of supporting a Choral Scholar is ca. $1,650. Scholars receive monthly stipends of $80, of which $60 is invested monthly into accounts dedicated to each student’s future education. The balance is paid monthly to each scholar for music-related expenses.
The scholars’ responsibilities include weekly rehearsal, singing at a weekly church service, and participating in special services and performances throughout the academic year. Enrollment in the program is projected at 10 students.
Wye Youth Chorale
The second program is the Wye Youth Chorale. The Chorale is for young students that like to sing and perform, even beyond their schooling programs.
Such students may or may not have any musical experience, but are open to the challenge and learning of ensemble singing. The Wye Youth Chorale is open to students, grades 4-7, for the year’s choir season beginning in October and ending in May. The Chorale will learn a variety of repertoire to be performed in concerts throughout the year.
