For the third consecutive year, Berklee and the Fundación CajaCanarias have signed a collaborative agreement to offer a scholarship to one outstanding musician from the Canary Islands to attend the Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration) program at Berklee’s campus in Valencia. Applications for the scholarship are now open until March 27, 2017, for the 2017-2018 program commencing in September. The scholarship is open to students who have earned a Bachelor of Music degree (Titulo Superior de Música) with the required level of English who originate from or are residents of the Canary Islands.

Completed applications must be turned in before the closing deadline. Short-listed candidates will then be invited to audition sessions and personal interviews with the scholarship selection committee, scheduled for April 3, 2017, in the Espacio Cultural Fundación CajaCanarias in Santa Cruz, Tenerife. The successful scholarship winner will be notified by June 1, 2017.

The scholarship will open the door to the world’s leading college of contemporary music for the most musically gifted students from the Canary Islands, enabling them to develop their talents and potential, and helping them succeed as performers in the music industry of today. The one-year, intensive Master of Music in Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration) program concentrates on developing artistic identity through live and recorded performance practice, as well as on developing students’ skills in preproduction, recording, and mixing.
