Announcing the 6th Annual Ocean City Pops Student Competition
May 4, 2016
4:00 PM at the Music Pier
Each season, the Ocean City Pops Orchestra features young, outstanding students in performances on the Music Pier. In keeping with this tradition and to feature local students, the Friends of the Ocean City Pops will hold its 6th Annual Student Music Competition for vocalists, instrumentalists, and pianists on Wednesday afternoon, May 4, 2016, at 4:00 PM at the Music Pier, Moorlyn Terrace and the Boardwalk, Ocean City.
Founded in memory of Esther C. Weil, a piano teacher and life-long patron of the arts, the competition is open to students in grades 9-12 from Atlantic and Cape May counties. Each applicant must have a recommendation from his/her school or private music teacher. This year, it is anticipated that three prizes will be awarded to both instrumental and vocal participants. The first-prize winners each will receive $1000 and be featured in a Pops concert during the 2015 summer season. Each second and third place winners will receive $500 and $250 respectively.
Please encourage students whom you feel are proficient enough in their musical training to enter our competition. Specific details about the requirements accompany this email and may be duplicated.
If you have any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or 609-391-0678. I look forward to receiving applications from your students.
