High School Application
HIGH SCHOOL APPLICATION
Enrollment is non-competitive and first-come, first-served in order to enable a participant-to-faculty ratio of 4:1. This ensures that every participant has an unparalleled opportunity to improve their technique and musicianship. If you are a high school student who has attended KBHC in the past, you do not need to reapply – click here. Acceptance for participation at KBHC for high school students scheduled to graduate in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 is by qualifying application. You must be at least 14 years of age as of May 31, 2019, presently in 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and currently studying horn privately on a regular basis.
The application includes a recording of your performance of three set pieces plus music of your own choice, a short essay on the subject “Why I Wish to Participate at KBHC in 2019” and two recommendations. The application forms are editable PDF files. Save these forms to your computer and then open them with Adobe or other PDF software. Do NOT use the Google Chrome PDF viewer as you will not be able to save or paste your video link into the form.
