SIERRA MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP
It is the goal of the St. James Concert Series to encourage and enable students of classical music to further their education and develop their skills. To that end, the Sierra Music Scholarship offers financial aid to students of classical music who are involved in private study. Recipients are from Calaveras and Tuolumne Counties.
The Scholarship fund, managed by the Sonora Area Foundation, was established in 1998 and to date has awarded $10,300 to 46 students in the Tuolumne/Calaveras area. Recipients include instrumental and vocal students studying with local teachers.
Scholarships are awarded in two age categories: 10 to 14, and 15 to 20.
Normally, there are two scholarships awarded in each age category. but this year, due to special circumstances, we awarded three scholarships in the older category.
Scholarship recipients will perform as part of the March 10, 2013 concert featured on the St. James Concert Series.
Tax deductible donations may be made to Sonora Area Foundation and marked for Sierra Scholarship Fund.
