Performance Celebration 5-7pm on Thursday, May 22, 2014 @ Jimmy Mak’s
The Oregon Music Hall of Fame is pleased to announce that Kristin Qian, Gabriel Young, Molly Burke, and Kyle Zimmerman are the recipients of the annual OMHOF College Scholarships. The scholarships, which cover a portion of college tuition costs, will be formally presented to each after their individual performances at Jimmy Mak’s, 221 NW 10th Ave, Portland, OR.
Thank you to EPB&B Insurance for jumping up our College Scholarship awards up to $2500 each from $1000 each of previous years!
The OMHOF college scholarship program began in 2007 and to date; OMHOF has awarded $35,500 in college scholarships to college bound students continuing their pursuit of a musical education degree.
“Selecting from 100+ musically passionate and talented applicants for the 7th annual OMHOF Scholarships with our Scholarship committee was not an easy task,” stated Janeen Rundle and Terry Currier, OMHOF Co-founders, “we are very pleased to award Kristin, Gabe, Molly and Kyle for their focus and continuing success in life, college and music.”
The scholarship presentation is a suggested donation event. (First 30 donations receive a limited edition OMHOF t-shirt!)
Following the performance presentation, the Oregon Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Mel Brown, of Mel Brown B3 Organ Group performs at 8:00pm. Cover charge for that show is $6. Please call ahead to reserve a table for Mel Brown’s Group performance. (503)295-6542
