The Oratorio Society of Queens invites students to apply for our Choral Scholarship Program and become part of the borough's most prestigious cultural institution. Student Choral Program offers high school and college students the opportunity to sing and perform with OSQ. OSQ underwrites the cost of music and waives membership dues for students. Music and binders are issued to students without charge.

Students must be full-time high school or college students in good academic standing, with a sincere interest in learning and performing choral music consisting of classical music such as Handel's "Messiah," Mozart's "Requiem," Beethoven's "Hallelujah" (Mount of Olives), holiday music and American spirituals and popular music.

Students are required to have an audition to determine their voice range and placement within the chorus.

Students must provide a short statement about their interest in choral singing, their past musical experience and their plans to continue to incorporate music into their adult lives.We require all members (student or regular) to take their relationship with OSQ and its members seriously. This includes regular and prompt attendance, proper attire and conduct, and courteous, attentive behavior during rehearsals, performances and other functions. Parental approval is mandatory. We have enjoyed student participation and look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with our student members of the future.
