2016-2017 YOI Scholarship Winners
October 15, 2016, we held the YOI Scholarship Auditions at Marsh Chapel, Boston University. We are pleased to report this year we had more candidates apply for the scholarship than ever before and we are pleased to announce the YOI program awarded scholarships to the following seven students:
Owen Carter, 17 of Concord
Savannah Curro, 15 of Arlington
James Delaney, 12 of Milton
Jo Ellen Lindeman, 12 of Belmont
Mathilde Sundaram, 16 of Concord
Zachary Todd, 11 of Wayland
Max Zuo, 15 of Sudbury
Each student will each receive private lessons with BAGO instructors, Boston Chapter AGO memberships as well as gift certificates from Spectrum Music.
Additionally, we will be featuring a YOI Scholarship student or two each month in Pipings as well as on the website. We will learn more about each of these students, their interests and see how they grow in their organ studies through the year.
The interest in the organ appears to be growing and thriving based upon the interest in and auditions this month and we look forward to this trend continuing and hope you will all support this effort. You can do so by welcoming them at BAGO events and supporting them in their recital at King’s Chapel, Tuesday June 27th at 12:15.
A heartfelt thank you to the following without whom this program and initiative would not have been possible:
Heinrich Christensen and King’s Chapel
Scott Jarrett, Justin Blackwell and Marsh Chapel
