• Each year the Ballston Spa Music Department presents 43 scholarships to graduating seniors worth over $2,800. Students can earn scholarships for their participation in our Tri-M Music Honor Society, music activities club, and contributions made to their performing ensembles. All of the proceeds from our Annual Pops Concert go directly to the music scholarship fund to support our seniors who have given so much to our department and community.
