Key Chorale announces its Student Scholar class for the 2022/23 concert season. The 14 students attend 5 Sarasota and Manatee County schools. Applicants are first recommended by their choir director and then selected through personal interviews and competitive auditions. Student Scholars sing a full performance season with Key Chorale as well as part of several other performance opportunities and masterclasses held throughout the season. The Key Chorale Student Scholar Program is designed to prepare gifted juniors and seniors for college-level success in music. This experience is designed for students with an exceptional aptitude for music, who plan to further their musical studies after high school. Students are expected to be academically successful to encourage academic commitment along with musical commitment. Through support from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and Key Chorale donors, all experiences are made available at no cost to the selected participants. Key Chorale’s education committee chair and Artistic Director always collaborate with the high school choral directors leading up to the new season. This connection contributes significantly to high school student interest in Key Chorale and the Student Scholar Program.  Key Chorale has had 27 students complete the program since it began in 2017. Nearly 50% of those alumni are either music majors or minors, and 100% are still involved in their college choir, community chorus, or Key Chorale. The goals of the student scholar program are to inspire a lifelong love and even career in vocal music, build good citizens as well as good musicians, and provide tools and experiences beyond the scope of what public school music programs can offer.
