Placer Pops Chorale Student Scholarship and Young Student Scholarship Programs
Placer Pops Chorale offers scholarships to young, budding vocalists. Three $800 scholarships will be awarded in May of each year to young musicians, aged 12 to 17, who have shown enthusiasm for the performing arts, and wish to expand their talent through voice or dance lessons. In addition, one $2,500 scholarship will be awarded in May of each year to a high school senior or college student enrolled in music education with a focus on vocal performance. These scholarship programs are offered by Placer Pops Chorale in order to encourage young vocalists to further their music studies through higher education.

The Placer Pops Chorale led by Artistic/Musical Director Lorin Miller, showcases professional-quality, highly entertaining choral music. The Chorale’s repertoire covers a variety of styles, with a strong emphasis on the popular music of the last 75 years, including the best of Broadway and Hollywood. The Chorale and Orchestra put on two major concert series each year, in May and in December, along with special appearances and benefit performances, including the annual, free A Gift of the Heart “Homeland” concert celebrating the 4th of July.
