The Sierra Master Chorale presents a competition of local singers ages 12-20.  This is a performance based competition with a $500 award as a grand prize.  We limit the competition to the first 10 applications we receive and the requirements are to perform two songs of varying styles or genres – piano accompaniment provided if needed.  Note:  the competition will be on hold until further notice.

Scholarship/grant programs


Our Music Matters Grant Program is going strong.  Grants of up to $750 may be awarded to Nevada County music students (Nevada County residents), ages 10-22, who submit an application and successfully pass a selection process.

We offer InConcert Sierra Music Scholarships to graduating seniors through the local high school district (NUHJSD) program.
