Scholarship Tickets

Thanks to many generous patrons, SCMS is able to offer a number of free tickets to our Festival’s concerts to the music students participating in our Music in the Classroom program. This opportunity gives these students a chance to experience world-class musicians performing related repertoire to what the students have performed as part of the Music in the Classroom program in the beautiful acoustics of Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall.
