During our chat with 14 year-old singer-songwriter Kate Diaz she told us how her time at the Berklee College of Music, which included playing Lollapalooza for the first time, was an inspiring moment in her young musical career.
And now until March, the Berklee College of Music will be hosting auditions for 2012’s scholarship contest in Chicago and in other cities as part of their world tour. Here’s more info on the Lollapalooza scholarship:
The college hopes the Berklee Lollapalooza Scholarship – a four-year, full tuition award – will attract a caliber of artist who might one day play the festival. A student who is not only a talented musician, but also a complete artist with a unique sound, charisma, and energy.
The application deadline for Fall 2012 is January 15. The first recipient will be chosen in March and announced at Lollapalooza 2012. As part of the partnership, a Berklee student artist will also be selected to perform at next year’s festival.
Good luck to everyone who’s auditions and let us know how your experience goes and we’ll share your story on a future episode of Live Fix Radio!
