In addition to interactive musical presentations, OMHOF awards yearly scholarships to selected graduating Oregon high school seniors who have exhibited serious pursuit and accomplishment in their personal musicianship – and who are college-bound music majors. Recipients are publicly recognized at an award presentation where each performs onstage, demonstrating mastery of his/her instrument.
From 2007 – 2014, OMHOF awarded 26 scholarships totaling $35,500. Our recipients have been accepted to prestigious schools including Juilliard, Yale, and Brown. Feedback indicates these scholarships motivate recipients to excel, give them extra credibility at the (often intimidating) university level, and help minimize their college debt.
2014 Scholarship Winners are:
Kristin Qian -Catlin Gabel School,West Linn, OR-Vioin/Piano
Molly Burke – Summit HS, Bend, OR – Bassoon
Kyle Zimmerman -Portland Adventist Academy, Portland, OR – Tenor Saxophone/Clarinet
Gabriel Young -Ashland HS, Ashland, OR -Oboe/Saxophone
2015 Scholarship applications will be available January 2015.
