Sarasota Music Club has supported music performance and education since 1930.

Suncoast Music Scholarships are offered to local students through a Sarasota Music Club and Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota partnership, formed in  2017.

Scholarships are awarded to 10th through 12th grade students residing and attending school in Sarasota or Manatee County, based on auditions that are judged by invited area music professionals.

Auditions for 2022 Suncoast Music Scholarships are scheduled for Saturday, April 23, and applications will be due no later than April 1.

An information sheet and application form for 2022 auditions will be posted by the end of December. The 2021 information sheet and application form are offered below for information purposes; guidelines are likely to be similar for performance time and selections. Though 2021 auditions were digitally submitted, we hope and plan to hold in-person auditions for 2022 Suncoast Music Scholarships.
