HSMF is using Acceptd as the Application and Acceptance platform: https://app.getacceptd.com/hotmusic
We also encourage established instrumental ensembles to apply, for even more opportunities to perform in our community Outreach Program.
Deadline for applications is March 15 and all applicants will receive notification of their status by April 1, 2020.
Participants for the entire duration of the Festival, 30 May through 13 June, will receive full instructional scholarships. There is a $750 fee for room and board. For those accepted as Apprentices, your $100 Application Fee will be applied to that total. The remaining $650 will be due May 1, 2019. Apprentices choosing not to participate in the entire Festival may attend for a $1750 tuition fee.
Apprentice applications are evaluated solely on merit. Personal information on this form is for administrative purposes only. Application materials become the property of the Hot Springs Music Festival and will not be returned. The application fee is $100 and is non-refundable.
Participants must arrive in time for the 6 pm orientation meeting on Saturday, May 30 and remain until the conclusion of the final concert on June 13th (arts administrators arrive by May 29).
Apprentices are responsible for their own transportation. For those willing to assist with rides during the Festival, we will reimburse drivers for gas during their time in Hot Springs. Please save your receipts.
Visit our travel page for information about traveling to Hot Springs.
Please send ONLY the information requested.

*Apprentices must be at least 18 years of age, submit a parental waiver of responsibility or provide a chaperone. There is no upper age limit.
Please note: if accepted, all Apprentices will sign a form provided by ASMSA, which states participants are willing to follow the rules as printed and stated at Orientation.
