Piano – A Brief History of Purpose

My intent for this scholarship is to encourage local talent along with a love for and an interest in music in general. We are calling for students (up to and including 24 years of age as of January 1 of this year) who are attending or have attended school for at least one academic year in the Courtenay/Comox and Campbell River areas to submit application forms. Based on the quality and content of these applications, up to six students will be selected to compete on a Saturday morning in May. The award will be $1000, to be held in trust for the student and used for anything that has to do with music or music education, such as concert tickets, musical instruments, music books and lessons.

My aim with all Virginia Graczak Music scholarships is to build a selfsustaining fund which will continue after I am unable to participate actively in fund raising. Good luck to all – Susie Moscovich
