The Heritage Choir Vocal Scholarship 

Application Instructions

The Southern Utah Heritage Choir is thrilled to be offering its first scholarship competition for singers!  This scholarship competition is for high school seniors who reside in the Washington County School District boundaries.  

Two winners will be invited to perform as a featured soloist with the Southern Utah Heritage Choir at their March 2022 Concert.   Additionally, they will join the choir on a few numbers.   Each winner will receive a $1000 scholarship.  The due date for submitting the online application, letters of recommendation, transcript, and photo is December 15, 2021.


In person auditions will be held in the middle of January 2022.  Those applicants selected for an in person audition should come prepared with a memorized vocal song.  This song can be an art song, an opera aria, or a song from Broadway musical theater.  Each finalist will need to provide their own live accompanist.
