*Note: Registration Forms and payment dates are posted and available to public from December 1. Please inquire by email at festival office instead of a faculty member about any financial or the registration process questions.
Applications are accepted beginning December 1 through spring. Spaces for participants are limited and early applicants receive better placement. Applicants are required to complete the Registration Form (include a recording and a letter of recommendation) and pay fees to register. Only complete applications are considered. You will receive your registration confirmation after the form, payment, and supporting materials (recording and reference) are received and reviewed by OMF.
Orfeo Music Festival has a limited number of scholarships available. To be considered, you must include your request as part of the application package (see below for details). Priority is given to those showing highest merit as demonstrated in the audition recording. Financial need is used only as a secondary consideration. Scholarship requests are considered as part of the application process only after the application is submitted fees paid. We are unable to provide any advance information on financial aid amount. The scholarship application must include 1) the first page of the most recent tax return, 2) a letter stating your musical achievements, 3) the amount of scholarship you are requesting and a statement of the financial circumstances on which your request is based. Only requests for financial aid received in writing together with your application will be considered. Please be aware that large scholarship requests without accompanying merit may jeopardize your acceptance. Requests for scholarship received after the application is processed or that do not contain the Letter of Request with all of the information required will not be considered. Scholarship recipients are assigned various administrative/office duties during the festival. Scholarship checks are to be requested after successful completion of duties following the festival and mailed to student’s address provided.
Please explore your local community, including arts, religious or civic organizations, schools and private donors for alternate sources of financial aid. Private donors will receive a tax deduction receipt from the festival as Orfeo Music Festival is pending a non-profit organization status approval from IRS.
"This has been a wonderful experience for me. It feels possible to fit a year’s worth of learning, performing, and listening into only couple weeks (impossible at home, where other responsibilities get in the way) and the exchange of ideas, inspiration and new friendships are as good as the music! Thank you."
