HANCEVILLE – Current and future Wallace State Community College students will have two opportunities to audition for scholarships with the Fine and Performing Arts programs for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Auditions will be on Friday, Feb. 15 and Friday, March 15 at the Burrow Center for the Fine and Performing Arts. Registration begins at 8 a.m., with auditions from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

Students auditioning will have the opportunity to perform in the program’s performing arts ensembles. Instrumental groups include the Wallace State Jazz Band, Concert Band, Pep Band, Saxophone Quartet and Brass Ensemble. Vocal groups include the Concert Choir, Wallace State Singers and Vocal Jazz Ensemble. The new Dance program includes the Allegra Dance Theatre. Drama includes the Wallace State Theatre, with scholarships available for cast and crew.

Each Wallace State Fine and Performing Arts program presents at least one program each semester, and often collaborate for large performances. Several groups also perform in the community at events such as Oktoberfest and the Cullman County Fair and travel each year for out-of-state performances.

Students interested in scholarships do not have to be music, theater or dance majors, but must have the ability and commitment to attend rehearsals and performances.
