Heritage Chorale Mentoring/Scholarship Program is offering one award of $1,000 for a student selected to sing with the scholarship group during the spring semester. Eligibility extends to high school seniors residing, attending high school or singing as members of a youth choir in Oak Park, River Forest, or Forest Park. The senior selected will sing with Heritage Chorale for its spring semester beginning in January 2014.
