Invitation for Gifted Young Musicians
Teenage musicians of high performance capability are invited to audition for membership in Tuesday Musicale’s Student League. Musicians belonging to the Student League appreciate the opportunity to meet monthly during the academic year with similarly gifted students. Meetings generally take place on Sunday evenings. Students also compete annually for prizes restricted to members of the League.
If you are the parent of a talented young musician who would like to associate with other young, talented musicians, this is the place for your son or daughter.
Benefits of Student League Membership:
Student League members get to meet equally talented teenage musicians. Monthly meetings give members the opportunity to perform with and for each other. Professional musicians are often invited to these meetings to counsel members on developing as professional musicians.
Prizes ranging up to $1,000 are offered in various instrumental and voice categories, with competitions for these prizes held in the spring of each year, with winners performing in a Prizewinners concert in April or May. Selected students also perform in the regular Tuesday Musicale regular concerts, giving them experience performing for discerning audiences.
Dues for Student League membership for the concert year are nominally $25.
For Student League renewals, please contact Student League Advisor Velda Kelly.
