For over a century the Pacific Musical Society & Foundation has nurtured the growth of gifted musicians by awarding merit-based scholarships to promising students in the Bay Area and surrounding regions. Each year we hold a competition for instrumentalists, pianists, vocalists, and composers in various age categories. Winners receive scholarship awards to support their ongoing musical education. The results are announced at a public concert in which our first place winners perform and their scholarship prizes are awarded.
For the 2019 competition, we will be adding a new category to the competition for chamber music (string quartets and piano trios), and making some adjustments to the existing categories. Please see the entry information for more details!
