Community Outreach and Education
A key element of TVMC's mission is its commitment to music education with emphasis on nurturing the choral singers, directors and audiences of our next generation. To that end, the Chorale currently sponsors several outreach programs, such as an annual Youth Vocal Solo Competition, Scholarship Awards Program, and an annual Community Chorale Festival.
Scholarship Award Program
The Chorale is proud to offer scholarships to students wishing to advance their education in vocal music. Each year, the Chorale donates money to the scholarship programs of Temecula Valley Unified School District and Murrieta Valley Unified School District. The selected graduating seniors receive a $500 scholarship towards their continued study of music. We have given over $60,000 in scholarships over the last 15 years. Our scholarship program is funded through the generous donations of our patrons, and by our annual fundraisers.
Youth Vocal Solo Competition
The TVMC Youth Vocal Solo Competition is the oldest educational outreach program sponsored by the Chorale. Each year, middle school and high school students have an opportunity to develop their vocal skills and perform in a professional setting. Noted adjudicators evaluate and give personal coaching to each participant. The top three winners in each division are awarded cash prizes totaling almost $2000 and are invited to perform during one of TVMC's concert series.
