JOY! Conservatory

JOY! Conservatory

Now entering its twelfth year, the JOY! Conservatory program provides full scholarships and unique educational opportunities for talented and highly motivated young musicians who sing, play an instrument, or are interested in music composition, through a competitive application and audition process.

  • During the academic year, students accepted into the JOY! Conservatory participate in a rigorous course of study that may include:
  • Weekly instrumental/vocal lessons with private teacher of choice for one school year. 
  • The opportunity for instruction in music theory and participation in master classes and ensemble coachings.

The opportunity to perform in a JOY! Conservatory recital Students enrolled in the JOY! Conservatory Program also have the opportunity to attend select professional performances, concerts, recitals, and master classes, at Jorgensen and the UConn School of Fine Arts in Storrs at no cost.


Applications for JOY! Conservatory Program Scholarships are accepted annually in the late spring. Thank you to all who applied this year.

JOY! Conservatory Program Scholarships are open to junior high and high school aged students in grades 8-12 who demonstrate talent, commitment, and financial need. To apply, the student must complete our application form (available online during the application period), and will need a letter of reference from a teacher or musician familiar with the student's talents and abilities. Additionally, the student must prepare two pieces of contrasting style that most exemplify their talent and musicianship for an audition. More details will be available during the next application period in 2020.
