Diane Cecala Memorial Scholarship Program 

Each year, the Hickory Tree Chorus awards a $1000 Scholarship to a high school senior girl with good academic records and exceptional talent in vocal music.  Students should also have applied for acceptance into a music program at a college or university.  Applicants must submit an application and audio or video performance which should include at least two vocal performances that demonstrate her particular talent.  CD’s may include accompaniment, as needed.  Music Educators please encourage your students who have exceptional talent to apply.  Applications will be sent to high school guidance departments in more than 50 communities in the New Jersey area.

Applications for the 2020 are now closed. Check back in February for the 2021 scholarship!

Diane Cecala was a beloved member of the Hickory Tree Chorus for more than thirty years.  On her passing in 2019, she asked that donations be made in her honor to the chorus.  These funds from family and friends are being used exclusively to help fund our scholarship program.

To help us continue growing this fund, please consider making a donation.
