Young Organist Initiative Scholarship Auditions

Scholarship auditions for the Young Organists Initiative will be held Saturday September 29th at 10:00 AM at The Dover Church, 17 Springdale Avenue, Dover MA.  

Students in Grades 6-12 are invited to audition. (Former Scholarship winners are not eligible).  Students should bring organ and/or piano music to audition for a scholarship for formal study of the organ.

Scholars receive:

  • Scholarships for 20 lessons (a $600 value) with a BAGO organ teacher
  • Membership for 1 year in the American Guild of Organists
  • Vouchers for organ music from Spectrum Music

At the conclusions of the year’s study, all Scholars will play in a recital at The Dover Church (Saturday May 18, 2019 at 2:00 PM) or at King’s Chapel, Boston (Tuesday July 2, 2019 at 12:15 PM).
