Assumption University is pleased to now offer band scholarships, based on an audition, up to $10,000 to incoming first-year students who demonstrate exceptional instrumental talent in woodwinds, brass, and percussion and who commit to participate in the Assumption University Band. The scholarship is renewable each year for instrumentalists who want to be part of an advanced level artistic experience and high quality ensemble and instrumentation.
The deadline to apply for this scholarship for the 2021-2022 academic year is January 15, 2021. As soon as possible, students should download and review the application requirements. Upon submitting a band scholarship application, students should also apply for admission to Assumption University.
The Assumption University Band is comprised of nearly 50 musicians and includes mostly students, with additional alumni, faculty, and some players from the general community. They rehearse every week in the Curtis Performance Hall which is located in the state-of-the-art Tsotsis Family Academic Center. This newly built space includes a rehearsal room and 400-seat performance hall. The band plays at least two full performances every semester, and the band, or ensembles from the band, also play for special events at the University throughout the year.
