2018 Scholarship Program

The 2018 Fred Kasper Memorial Scholarship is open to all applicants who will be under 30 years of age as of July 1, 2018. Scholarships are open to players of all instruments, singers and dancers. We typically receive funding to grant two scholarships, one to a young artist who is in primary or secondary school (age 18 or under), and second scholarship to a young adult (age 19-29).

Applicants are asked to submit:
• a letter describing their artistic experience and future goals.
• letters of support or reccomendation from teachers or colleagues are also helpful.
• an unedited video or sound recording sample of your playing, singing, dancing is required.

Application deadline is May 15, 2018. Files can be sent as a link or as attachments. Please send all applications to with 'SCHOLARSHIP' in the subject line.

Our Boxwood scholarship winners will present a shared 30 minute recital on Wednesday July 25 @ 12 noon at St. John's Anglican Church, Lunenburg. Admission is free and all are welcome; please join us to congratulate these wonderful young musicians!
