Scholars Program

We honor a centuries-old tradition, designating students with outstanding music skills and high academic achievement for our Scholars programs. Anyone who auditions for a music scholarship at William Jewell is already considered for these distinguished scholarships, regardless of major.

The Choral Scholars Program participants exhibit exceptional vocal skills and the ability to express those skills sensitively within a choral setting. They perform in Concert Choir (our premier choral ensemble), take part in other ensembles and benefit from voice lessons and master classes with renowned vocal groups such as The King’s Singers, James Galway and Joyce DiDonato.

The Instrumental Scholars Program consists of players with exceptional technique and mastery of their wind or percussion instrument. These musicians form a pool of players that participate in the Jewell Symphonic Band and chamber winds, act as section leaders and participate in clinics and master classes with visiting professionals like the principals of the San Francisco Symphony.

The Orchestral Scholars Program brings together a pool of advanced string players interested in quality orchestral and chamber music performance. These players serve in leadership roles with the chamber music program, collaborate in various ensembles and are active members of the Liberty Symphony Orchestra.
