Performance Fellowships

Bain Vocal Fellowships

Growing from a generous bequest of Wilfred Bain, founder of the Houghton College Choir and pre-eminent American music educator, the Bain Fellowships are awarded annually to the outstanding soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and baritone/bass entering first-year student. Recipients are usually music majors, though in cases of exceptional merit an award may be made to a non-major. Fellowship holders will participate in choral and chamber ensembles as well as Houghton Lyric Theater. Consideration for these fellowships is concurrent with entrance auditions to the School of Music. Bain Vocal Fellowships are renewable annually based on maintenance of appropriate criteria.
