The scholarship is available to a student who has instrumental ability and/or singing ability. The student will take Music as a timetabled option subject and will have a great passion for all aspects of musical performance.
All boys who are short-listed for consideration must audition.

The audition will last up to 15 minutes in duration. All short-listed students will be notified at least one week before audition.
