Laura Jane Musser Music Center Scholarships announced

St. Francis Music Center, Little Falls, recently held their auditions for the 2016-2017 Laura Jane Musser Merit Scholarships. Thirty-nine students were nominated by their teachers to participate in the auditions. Each student performed two contrasting pieces for an independent judge. Students were judged on their ability at their level of study, so students of all ages were able to compete.

Ten exceptional students were awarded a $100 scholarship to be used towards their 2016-17 tuition. These students are: Claire Breitenfeldt from Long Prairie; Sylvia Erwin from Fort Ripley; Ava Haggerty from Flensburg; Jakob Hyatt from Pierz; Peter Knopik, Collin Kray and Bailey Stalmer from Little Falls; Mason Langner from Royalton; Nicholas Mettler from Burtrum; and Lorraine Mrosla from Bowlus.

The judges were impressed by all the students that auditioned. The auditions were open to all instruments. This year piano, violin, guitar, cello, flute and voice students participated.

The Merit Scholarship Program is funded by the Laura Jane Musser Trust for the purpose of rewarding and assisting highly dedicated and talented music students to continue their studies. St. Francis Music Center is a community school for the arts located in Little Falls. All their programs are open to everyone. For more information, visit www.sfmusiccenter.org or call (320)632-0637.
