The Negro Spiritual Scholarship

The "Negro Spiritual" Scholarship Foundation works with Orlando Opera to sponsor a vocal competition for sacred music performed by the solo voice in characteristic Negro spiritual style.


Senior high school students of eleventh or twelfth grade level who are of Afro-ethnic descent may enter a statewide vocal competition to rehearse and perform these arranged Negro spirituals. Students who enter the competition must work with a voice teacher to learn a new piece of music sent to them, and to meet the high vocal standards of this competition. Winners (one male and one female) claim the coveted Grady-Rayam Prize In Sacred Music, a college tuition assistance grant for $3,000.

Runners up (one male and one female) gain $2,000 as a college tuition assistance grant. All singers who make it to the final round receive a cash award of one hundred dollars.

To enter, fill out and submit an online application at our website.
