College House Music Fellow Application Now Open-- Due 12/12/16

College Houses and Academic Services and the Department of Music invite dedicated and creative undergraduate performing musicians to apply for our Undergraduate Music Fellowships!


These single-semester fellowships are intended to support the implementation of a performance-centered project, as designed and proposed by the music fellow; a fellowship will award one semester of one-hour weekly private lessons with an instrument or vocal instructor currently listed with the department. If the student is already enrolled in MUSC 10, then s/he will instead receive a cash award of $500. Eligible students should reside on campus in a College House and participate in the department’s private lesson program.


We seek projects that aim to enrich the cultural life of the host House and beyond. Possibilities include, but are not limited to, a creative series of small concerts or events; the creation of a program culminating in a single end-of-term performance or event; an interdisciplinary endeavor that engages one or more of the other arts, such as theatre, visual arts, cinema, and dance. We welcome proposals representing any musical repertoire, style, genre, including the innovative juxtaposition, overlap, or fusion of different music-making traditions. The ideal candidate should be highly practiced in his/her instrument, dedicated to artistic expression through performance, and interested in the arts leadership, management and community-building that can surround it.


Applications are being accepted through December 12, 2016.  See for more details and to apply.
