Wild Rose Chorale

For the sixth year in a row, the Wild Rose Chorale, Port Townsend’s a cappella vocal ensemble, is making as much as $1,000 in scholarships available to students of choral music.

“We want to encourage and foster the musical development of deserving young students,” said scholarship cochair Al Thompson. “It’s our challenge and our responsibility as adult musicians to help keep young people interested in music as a lifelong passion.”

Graduating high school seniors and those who are already attending colleges and universities may apply. To be eligible, students must be studying or continuing to participate in the field of choral music.

The competitive award or awards are based on factors that include strength of academic achievement, music proficiency and recommendations from a vocal music teacher plus two adults connected to the student through music, community or academia.

For complete scholarship information, call 379-1696 or 385-1402, or email Lynn Nowak at nowak.lynn@gmail.com. Deadline for returning applications is May 1 and may be sent to: Wild Rose Chorale Scholarship, 2263 Towne Point Ave., Port Townsend, WA 98368.

The field of vocal music includes vocal music performance, vocal music conducting, vocal music accompanying and vocal music teaching. Applicants must be residents of East Jefferson County.

Applications are accepted from graduating high school seniors or those students who are already attending colleges, universities or conservatories.

The scholarship honors Bergstrom, a cofounder of the Community Chorus who was also a music educator, soprano soloist, organist and conductor for more than three decades in Port Townsend.
