Stamford Center for the Arts announced a newly created scholarship opportunity for a talented vocalist, Stamford Center for the Arts will award its third Annual Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Award, in honor of Diana Ross on March 30, 2012 at SCA’s Gala starring Liza Minnelli. The recipient of this award will receive a $2,000 scholarship to pursue his/her musical education.

The criteria and audition process for the scholarship is outlined on SCA’s website at www.scalive.org; go to the Scholarship tab on the home page or go to our Facebook page and click on the Scholarship Information tab on the left hand side. The audition is open to all high school students, grades nine through twelve, who live in Fairfield County, CT. The deadline to submit the completed audition form, resume and CD is February 27, 2012.

Last year’s recipient of the Annual Emerging Young Artist Scholarship Award was Danny Pravder, an outstanding young jazz pianist from Staples High School in Westport who received the scholarship in Dave Brubeck’s name at last year’s Diana Ross Gala Concert. This season Danny has been featured at two performances on The Palace Stage.

The Emerging Young Artist Scholarship is integral to SCA’s Arts Education program. “Arts in Education will continue to be one of the driving forces of the institution as we move forward,” said SCA Executive Director, Elissa Getto. “We are able to capitalize on the momentum created through our past programs and continue to develop and offer some truly unique experiences for our youth this year.”
