High School Students Invited to Enter Instrumental Music Competition

Coronado high school students in grades 9 through 12 are invited to participate in the 2020 Coronado Rotary Music Scholarship Competition. This is an opportunity for young musicians to win cash prizes, develop their performance skills in front of appreciative audiences, and audition for and receive feedback from prestigious local musicians.

Prize money will be rewarded to participants at each level of competition: club, regional, and the Rotary District Finals.

The 2019 Coronado Rotary Music Scholarship Competition for high school students featured dynamic instrumental performances at a Rotary luncheon meeting. Pictured above are first place winner Ryan Wood (guitar), second place Alex Murray (piano), and finalists Sebastian Sanchez (bass) and Michael Storm (guitar).

The competition is open to high school students who live in Coronado or attend school in Coronado (or both), and who plan to continue their musical education beyond high school. The competition is limited to instrumentalists, but is open to performances of any genre of music (classical, jazz, modern, etc.), including original compositions.

The application deadline for the Coronado Rotary 2020 Music Scholarship Competition is December 13, 2019. Apply online at www.coronadorotary.com or e-mail Rotary Music Chair Mariah Gillespie at mariah@msmariahsmusic.com for a paper application.
