RED BANK, NJ – The Monmouth Civic Chorus will hold its annual vocal scholarship auditions for New Jersey high school seniors planning to pursue higher education. Auditions will be held by appointment only on Saturday afternoon, March 13, 2011 at the United Methodist Church, 247 Broad Street, Red Bank. The application deadline is March 6.
