Scholarships Overview

RB Chorale Scholarship Awards

The primary mission of the RB Chorale is to bring the joy of music to our community, as well as to provide support and music scholarship award monies to musically talented local high school students for college major studies and to enhance their musical training and advancement.

Each year the RB Chorale performs two (2) musical productions at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts, one in the Spring and one at Christmas. These family-friendly and uplifting productions are filled with excitement, and our dedicated audience looks forward to every new show.

Especially in the Spring when fresh faces appear, when we highlight the six (6) finalists of our annual scholarship competition.  Three (3) are featured during the Friday night production and three (3) in the Saturday evening show.  The talent of each finalist is spotlighted in a performance that culminates in a ballot by the audience that determines how the monies are awarded that evening.

The awards in June 2017 totaled $15,000, divided as follows for each show.
 – 1st place – $3,500
 – 2nd place – $2,500
 – 3rd place – $1,500

Many of our scholarship winners have continued a musical education at the University of California, Julliard School of Music, Eastman College of Music, USC Thornton School of Music, Berklee College of Music, Northwestern University, and other prestigious universities here and abroad. We are proud of our winners and know that they continue to make positive contributions to the wonderful world of music.
