NECOM and the Armidale Youth Orchestra are again offering scholarships for talented and committed students of woodwinds, recorder and brass, wishing to take up a second ‘endangered’ instrument. The targeted endangered instruments for 2020 are oboe, bassoon and French horn.
The scholarships are valid for 12 months and provide 50% of program fees for 9x30-minute lessons per term with a New England Conservatorium teacher plus 100% of the instrument hire fee.
The Scholarship holder will be required to join the Armidale Youth Orchestra programs (ie. AYWE or AYO) on the endangered instrument once they gain an appropriate degree of expertise on that instrument. Holders must maintain a high degree of commitment to AYO program rehearsals and be available for all performances.
