JazzErie will again offer a $1000 scholarship to a promising young musician.  A candidate must be a graduating senior who has demonstrated interest and skill in jazz music, and is enrolling in a course of post-high school study in an accredited program which includes a focus on music.

JazzEri'e Education Committee co-chair Chuck Lute says, "We look forward to again receiving applications from music students in the Erie region who are interested in jazz. 

"It was my good fortune this year to sit on a state-wide adjudication committee, along with former McDowell High School instrumental music director Dave Hetrick. selecting best instrumental jazz students,  We reviewed a lot of performance videos and I was floored by how many really accomplished performers and bands we heard.  There's a lot of talent and really accomplished playing out there.  And I know from our experience in past years that this holds true for our region as well."

He encourages young musicians to apply.  For more information, contact him at clute2576@roadrunner.com.

Applications for the Scholarship are due on May 10, and must include recommendations plus an essay about the student's experience and aspirations,  or a video demonstrating the student's performance skills, plus additional information. 

Applications will be reviewed by JazzErie's Scholarship Committee, and decisions by the Committee are final.
