Summer Music Camp Scholarship
Part of the mission of the Hanover Wind Symphony (HWS) is to “...bringmusic to people and people to music.” One of the ways we do this is to provide support for music education and aspiring instrumentalists seeking to pursue music as a career or an avocation. Consistent with this mission, in 2017 the HWS launched a music scholarship to provide funding for a New Jersey middle or high school music student who demonstrates musicalability and a passion for music. The scholarship provides funding so the recipient can attend a quality residential summer music program. Additionally, the recipient would have the opportunity to perform a solo in a concert with the HWS.
Our first scholarship winner was saxophonist Christopher Mantell from Randolph High School. Christopher attended the Rutgers Chamber Music camp this summer where he studied with internationally recognized teacher, Dr. Paul Cohen. Christopher performed the Walter S. Hartley "Concerto No. 1 for Saxophone and Band" accompanied by the Hanover Wind Symphony. Chris is the embodiment of the kind of student who deserves the support of groups like ours as he pursues his musical dreams.
Support for the 2017 scholarship came from members of the HWS and the community at large. We would particularly like to thank our corporate sponsors — Sage Broadview Financial Planning, JLL, and Merck — for helping to get the scholarship program started.
For 2018, we would like toexpand our donor base and raise sufficient funds to sustain the scholarshipinto the future.
