BENNINGTON, Vt. – Calling all students who have a passion for learning how to play the piano or mastering their talent. The opportunity to attend a summer piano camp at Sonatina in Old Bennington, Vt. on a scholarship is possible this summer due to the generosity of Sonatina alumni and others in the community who feel it is important to make musical instruction available to everyone, regardless of financial capacity.
All levels of piano ability will be considered eligible for the scholarship. Recipients must be students aged 7-16 who live within a 100-mile radius of Bennington. This year a panel of five local volunteers will review and approve the applications, awarding the scholarships to the most passionate and deserving individuals. Applicants are requested to visit www.benningtonareaartscouncil.org to fill out an online scholarship application or download a paper application. Applications must be submitted by the April 1 deadline.
If you would like to make a donation to the scholarship fund, you may do so until April 1 online at www.benningtonareaartscouncil.org.
