Music Academy Offering Scholarships For New Members Of VI Youth String Orchestra
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — G-Clef Music Academy successfully launched its VI Youth String Orchestra earlier this year.
After the summer break, G-Clef has been eager to continue and expand the orchestra with new members, said G-Clef’s James Gumbs.
G-Clef is opening up membership through a scholarship opportunity.
Interested youths, ages eight to 17, can apply for a scholarship to become a member of the VI Youth String Orchestra, Gumbs said.
Scholarship recipients receive free weekly sectionals/rehearsals to learn how to play the violin, viola, cello, or bass violin and participate in orchestra performances.
“Each applicant must audition, have some music experience, and is subject to qualifications,” he said.
The first sectional/rehearsal for the season will be on Monday November 11 (Veterans Day) at 4:00 p.m. at G-Clef Music Academy in Mandela Circle.
G-Clef is encouraging St. Thomas parents, whose children love music, to call (340) 344-6449 for a scholarship application and further information.
