Following annual auditions March 16 and 17, the guild has awarded 16 new scholarships for private music lessons and summer music camps. An additional 21 current recipients are eligible to continue their lesson scholarships next school year.
Scholarships provide winners with up to $800 toward private lessons through Millikin’s Preparatory Department, or up to $700 toward tuition for a summer music camp. Pei-I Wang and Julie McClarey served as audition judges for piano students; Ted Hartley and Colleen Hillyer were judges for band and orchestral instruments.
Some of the scholarships are donated by or in honor of someone: the Fombelle woodwind scholarship, Hardy Foundation string scholarships, and Marilyn Mertz and Margaret Fassnacht piano scholarships. Five are memorial scholarships honoring Bob Jones, Margaret Foley, and Dean and Dottie Butts.
New recipients for 2018-2019 are pictured below, with their current grade in school.
