Betty Banghart Scholars

Betty Banghart Scholarships

The Betty Banghart Scholarship Fund was established to support the development of musical talent in young people through membership in either the Deer Creek Chorale (DCC) or the Deer Creek youth Choir (DCYC). Scholarships are available to youth that are formally enrolled as students in public, private, or home education. Post high school applicants may be enrolled either full or part-time in some formal post high school education program, e.g. college, vocational school, apprenticeship, etc. Those applying for a DCYC scholarship need only meet the age/grade requirements for DCYC membership. DCC applicants must be at least 15, but not more than 22 years of age on the date of the first rehearsal. Applicants must have an endorsement from a music teacher/choir director that can credibly describe their musicianship and capacity for participation in the chorale.


Expectations
Recipients of a Betty Banghart Scholarship will be expected to participate fully as a member of their choir for the full season; meeting or surpassing the Deer Creek standards for attendance, participation, and performance. It is also expected that Betty Banghart Scholars will be exemplary ambassadors of the Deer Creek Chorale and Youth Choir by sharing and promoting our vision and mission with family, friends, and others. Each choir has its own additional expectations for recipients.

Procedure
Carefully review the Information Letter for your choir at the appropriate link below.  Consider if you meet the requirements as described and are willing to accept the responsibility of being a Betty Banghart Scholar. Further instructions regarding the application process are in your choir’s Information Letter.

Applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee and announcements of the recipients will be made prior to the first rehearsal of the season in September.  Check our Calendar for the exact date.

About Betty Banghart…

Betty had a strong interest in the mission of the Deer Creek Chorale, and the scholarship fund in her honor will allow its student members to continue to enhance this multi-generational community chorus.

Betty Banghart came to Baltimore as a young bride in 1939. She raised three children and then had a career as an educator. As headmistress of Boy’s Latin Lower School she devoted herself to the development of young men in all aspects of life.

Betty’s own musical talents were displayed in college, as a member of the Wheaton College modern dance troupe. Her interest in classical music continued throughout her life. She was a supporter of many local cultural activities including the Peabody Institute and the musical achievements of her daughter-in-law Martha Banghart.
