The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is seeking outstanding current third and fourth grade City of Chicago students to participate in an exciting full scholarship program. The Percussion Scholarship Program, which began in the fall of 1995, includes weekly classes and private lessons with a member of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra free of charge.
The success of this program, which is sponsored by the Negaunee Music Institute at the CSO, depends on the strength of the recruiting process. We need your help in finding the most talented, hardest-working students in Chicago. Most importantly, we need students who work well with others and have a great sense of responsibility and commitment. Equally important, for students to succeed in the program they must have extremely supportive, dependable parent(s) and a strong sense of self-discipline.
