3. Participate in at least one of the following:
a. Henderson County Schools Band or Orchestra Music Program

Hendersonville NC 28793

Note: While financial need is considered, greater emphasis is placed on student applications and teacher recommendations. Need-based scholarships are also available for all Symphony Education Programs.  Our commitment is that no student is turned away from our programs for lack of funds.  Please contact the individual program managers directly for information on tuition scholarship applications or to support students in the various programs and ensembles.

If you are interested in helping build the orchestra of tomorrow through contributions in any amount, please contact the Hendersonville Symphony office or donate here.
