EPO Student Scholarship

Each season the Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra offers youth scholarships for talented orchestral musicians currently studying at the secondary school or college/university level. Students studying music privately with intent for a career in music should apply.

The goal of this scholarship is to provide young musicians with orchestral experience, professional mentorship and some financial assistance to support their music studies.

Auditions are held each spring for the following orchestral season. The scholarship term will last from September to June. Successful candidates will be expected to attend all EPO rehearsals and to perform at the five EPO season concerts.
