Student Selected for SCMEA Scholarship

Jennifer Most, an 11th-grader at Elwood-John H. Glenn, is among a select group of 12 student-musicians who received the SCMEA Scholarship to attend the New York Summer Music Festival at SUNY Oneonta.

Entrance into the highly competitive summer program required Most to submit a recording of her performance in last year’s SCMEA festival, a written essay and teacher recommendations. Selected from more than 200 applicants, Most will have the opportunity to play with talented student-musicians from across the globe. In addition, student-musicians will play under the guidance of faculty members from some of world’s finest musical institutions, including Juilliard, Curtis, the Manhattan School of Music, Peabody and Eastman.

Most was awarded the scholarship at the SCMEA Division III Concert at Huntington High School on March 14.
