Audition for a music scholarship!
Wittenberg awards more than $350,000 in music scholarships annually, and these are available to all students, regardless of major—for voice, band and orchestral instruments, piano, organ, and classical guitar. Several dozen scholarships are awarded each year. You need to complete your audition by Mar. 1 before your first year at Wittenberg. If you are considering a major in music, this audition will also serve as your entrance audition.
