May 22: Young Artist Program Audition and Scholarship Competition

Students ages 8 to 18 are invited to audition for acceptance into the Mason Gross Extension Division Young Artist Program at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 22, in Schare Recital Hall. Parents must complete the Young Artist Program application form and submit the form to the Extension Division office no later than Sunday, April 17.

The top three students in the audition will each receive $650 scholarships, which will cover annual membership fees; $500 scholarships also are available. Students must be enrolled in private instruction through the Mason Gross Preparatory School to be eligible for scholarships. Please note that current Young Artists are scheduled to perform their juries on the above date and time; this performance will count toward the scholarship competition. 

Schare Recital Hall is in the Marryott Music Building, which is part of the Mason Gross Performing Arts Center at 85 George St. (between Route 18 and Ryders Lane) on the Douglass Campus of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in New Brunswick.
