Scholarship Auditions


It is time to start auditioning for scholarships.  If you are planning to attend college in the fall you need to audition.  There is money out there for you, even if you are not a music major.

As I get info I will add it to this post, but be sure to search the school you are interested in.  Go to their web site and find the details.  Most audition in January and/or February.  Don’t miss out.

Some Marching Opportunities:

First USU still wants the band to come up on Nov 15th, and we need to make a decision soon.

Second I just got an email from BYU about their first annual HS Band Day.  Nov 22nd.  Find the flyer here:  Band Day 2014 Flyer

Third The U is hosting their Band day again this year on Nov 8.  Find their info here:  A-1DirectorExperienceLetter2014 (1)

Any of these would be a great way to find out what college marching is like.

Weber State has added a Band Day as well.  It is also on the 15th.  Go to their web site to sign up and get more details.

UV You days for music

Hello, my name is Whitney Olsen and I work at Utah Valley University. I wanted to let you know about a special event we have coming up for all high school students interested in music.

Every year my office organizes several UV You Days which are open to all students, parents, faculty, and counselors. During this event students receive essential information about their college major, and meet their future dean, professors, and advisors. UV You Days are free Saturday events and students will receive breakfast and lunch. The Music and Dance UV You Day will be held on Saturday, January 21st, 2011. I encourage you to invite your students to attend this event.

Along with other prizes, a $200 bookstore scholarship will be given away at every event! Also, if your student wears their FREE UVU t-shirt they can enter to win an ipad! To order their t-shirt and have it mailed to them before the event direct your students to There they will find a scrolling advertisement for this t-shirt.

To register for this event your student can visit

I appreciate your help. Please let me know if you have any questions.
