Bart Pitman Memorial Music Scholarship
$6,000 first prize, $3,000 runner up
For High School Seniors
Application Information

College or conservatory-bound high school seniors who plan to declare a major in classical piano or organ in the fall semester of 2024 are invited to apply for a Bart Pitman piano/organ scholarship. The applicants must reside in or study with a teacher who resides in Pennsylvania or New Jersey. Award money will be applied to the winner’s college tuition package.

Applicants should be prepared to play from memory three pieces of contrasting periods or composers from the standard classical piano or organ literature.  A jury of professional keyboard musicians will select a winner on the basis of a live audition performance. Only two winners will be selected per year.  The judges reserve the right to choose no winner if appropriate.

The winner will be required to perform at the Delaware Valley Music Club's Young Performers Concert on a mutually convenient date during the March college break.
