Cadek Conservatory Of Music Hosts Scholarship Auditions

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Cadek Conservatory of Music at Girls Preparatory School welcomes current Cadek students and non-professional private instruction students in the Chattanooga region to apply for scholarship auditions. Auditions, which will take place April 17-18, will give applicants a chance to compete for partial- and full-term tuition awards to be applied to private music instruction at Cadek for the 2021-22 academic year. 

Audition dates for all instruments are Saturday, April 17, and Sunday, April 18, in the Evans Center at GPS, with in-person and live virtual options available. Auditions will be judged by a panel of professional musicians and music educators. There is no registration fee. 

“These auditions give students an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and commitment to music and fully or partially fund their lessons for a year,” says Cadek Coordinator Mark Krawczyk. “We offer scholarship opportunities for everyone, from beginner to highly advanced students. We strive to encourage those who show promise and to reward those who have reached high achievements in their art form. We welcome students to test their mettle in front of professional judges and support their own artistry.”

Applications are now available at Cadek.org/Scholarship. The deadline to apply is Saturday, March 20. All registration and forms are online. Hard copies of audition music may be submitted to the Cadek office on campus at GPS.

Incentive and Achievement Scholarships Available 
Applications are available for Incentive and Achievement scholarships. Scholarship awards are divided into two terms and can apply only to tuition for enrollment in Cadek’s entire academic year.

Incentive Scholarships—Awards range from partial to a full academic year scholarship
Cadek welcomes beginner to intermediate current Cadek students to audition for Incentive Scholarships. These awards are designed for students who show commitment to personal growth and discovery, who continue to work on their craft, and who strive to develop a professional practice habit. 

Applicants should prepare a five-minute audition, performing all pieces from memory. Digital uploads of the music must be submitted with an application. Please read the application instructions before applying at Cadek.org/Scholarship.

Achievement Scholarships—Prizes range from partial to full academic year scholarship
Cadek welcomes advanced Cadek students and non-professional private-instruction students in the greater Chattanooga region to audition for Achievement Scholarships. These awards are designed for advanced students who are working toward collegiate or professional levels of study and performance. Interested applicants should demonstrate mastery of their craft, exhibit artistic professionalism, maintain a dedicated practice, and perform challenging pieces. 

Applicants should prepare a 10-minute audition, performing all pieces from memory with music from at least two contrasting periods. Digital uploads of the music must be submitted with an application. Please read the Application Instructions before applying at Cadek.org/Scholarship.

Auditions are held in the Evans Center at Girls Preparatory School, 205 Island Ave. A Cadek representative will schedule audition times after the application deadline. Results will be shared with a student’s instructor within two weeks of the audition.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, a live virtual audition option will be made available if requested. All brass, woodwind, and vocal auditions must be completed virtually. If at any time Cadek and GPS leaders determine all auditions must change to a virtual format, Cadek Conservatory reserves the right to make this change.
