Scholarship Auditions

The Kotzschmar Memorial Trust Scholarship

was established in 1911 to provide financial aid “in the musical education of such pupil or pupils, of marked musical ability.” According to the terms of the trust, preference is to be given to promising students of the organ. If no such promising student is found, the trust states that the award “….may be used in aid of students of marked music ability in piano, violin, other musical instruments or voice culture.”

Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ (FOKO) is the administrator of this fund, arranges the auditions and disperses the awards.

Auditions are open to students age 10-18 (grades 4-12), and age 19-25, studying organ, piano, voice, and all orchestral instruments.
