The Tri-County Music Association wishes to congratulate the 2018 recipients of the John R. Pandolfi Scholarship. Since 1962, the Tri-County Music Association has been working hard to bring quality music to the community and to assist local youth in achieving dreams of doing the same. Proceeds from ticket sales and generous donations are distributed annually to a competitive selection of young people whose talent and ambition serves as an inspiration for the Tri-County Symphonic Band. We encourage you to follow us on Facebook and visit us at www.tricountysymphonicband.org to find our concert schedule, make a donation to our scholarship fund, and find our scholarship and summer study grant applications.
Each year $12,000 is distributed among students. College students receive scholarships worth $1,000 – $2,500. For high school students, summer study grants are awarded to assist with the cost of excellent music camps and lessons, such as Tanglewood Institute, Berklee College of Music, the New England Conservatory, and many more.
This year we congratulate college students Angela Reed of Fall River (Rhode Island College), Maxxon Wolski of Mattapoisett (Berklee College of Music), Carla Rivera of New Bedford (Westfield State University), Kelley Osterberg of Hingham (Northwestern University), and Elijah Wilson of Dartmouth (UMass Amherst). We also congratulate our outstanding high school students who received summer study grants: Kelley Osterberg (Tanglewood), Emma Gabriel of Mattapoisett (Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music), Shannon Dennehy of Taunton (South Shore Conservatory), and Mia Quinlan of Marion (flute lessons at University of Rhode Island).
Without the attendance and donations of a large group of supporters, none of these scholarships or grants could exist. More information about the Tri-County Music Association is available online at http://www.tricountysymphonicband.org.
