Dear Irvine Music Festival Community,
We realize that this is an unprecedented time for all of us as we struggle with uncertainty on a global scale. As we continue to monitor, assess and respond to the situation with the Coronavirus and COVID-19, our hearts and thoughts go out to all of your families.
We understand our applicants may require more time to prepare their audition materials. Therefore we have decided to extend our scholarship deadline to April 30, 2020.
We are coordinating with Concordia University Irvine and their safety protocols as we continue to prepare for our summer 2020 session.
Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the application process.
