The Charlotte Chorale is pleased to offer the R. Bruce MacGregor Memorial Scholarship of $3,000 to a graduating Charlotte County High School student. The qualifying applicant must have proven ability and interest in vocal, piano, or instrumental music and must intend to enroll at an accredited institution of higher learning, majoring in music performance or education, musical theatre or sacred music.

"We are thrilled to be offering the scholarship again this year" said Janet Sims on behalf of the Charlotte Chorale. "It is our privilege and honor to promote the continuing education of young aspiring musicians to further their education and love for music." The winner of the scholarship will be invited to perform with the Charlotte Chorale on a future Chorale concert at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center in Punta Gorda.

The R. Bruce MacGregor Memorial Scholarship is in honor of the late R. Bruce MacGregor, the founder and first director of The Charlotte Chorale in 1989. His legacy lives on as The Chorale celebrates it's thirtieth anniversary with the current 2018-19 Season.
