Non-Music Major Scholarships

Are you considering enrolling in Roberts, but not as a music major? Are you in the choir, orchestra, or band in your high school? Did you know that you do not have to be a music major at Roberts to participate in both our large and small ensembles?

We Have Non-Music Major Ensemble Scholarships Available!

  • Scholarships awarded based on skill level and our need for the
    instrument/voice part in our ensembles.
  • Due to the covid-19 pandemic, auditions will be conducted by video recording
    and Zoom.
  • Scholarships will be awarded once you’ve completed your Free Application for
    Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • If you have any questions, contact the Department of Music & Performing Arts
    at music@roberts.edu or 585-594-6320.
  • To sign up for an audition, please email music@roberts.edu with the subject
    line “Non-Music Major Scholarship Audition.” In your email, please include the
    following information:
    • Name
    • Hometown

    • Instrument/voice part

Your Audition Video

  • Once you express interest via email, we will send you instructions for how to
    submit your video recording to us.
  • You will be asked to submit a recording of you performing one solo piece,
    either with or without accompaniment. Please choose a selection that is
    moderately advanced to advanced in skill (if you are from New York, this would
    correspond to a NYSSMA Level 5 or Level 6 solo).
  • Once we have received your video recording, we will pass it on to our ensemble
    directors.
