Mataji Baguio, vocal student of Bette Glenn
Julia Lombard, student of Barbara DeDeo
Though we were unable to hold auditions, it was the unanimous decision of the Board of RCMTG to award this Scholarship to both applicants out of a generosity of spirit at a time of hardship for so many of our young people going on to college.
Congratulations and Best Wishes
to both these young women as they move
on to college and grow in their love and study of music.
There were no applicants for the George Bryant Scholarship.
2020 RCMTG Scholarship Winners Announced
The Rockland Music Teachers Guild offers two scholarships each year to high-school seniors of outstanding music ability who plan to continue musical studies in college.
The George Bryant Scholarship, established 2017, awards $4000 to students who plan to continue as a music major at a University or Conservatory.
The RCMTG Scholarship awards $2000 to students who plan to continue musical studies in college, not as a major.
Scholarship auditions will be held on the same day as the RCMTG Young People's Auditions. Applications are submitted through the Auditions Committee upon request, for no fee. Applicants may only apply to one of these scholarships.
Both the RCMTG and the George Bryant Scholarships will be offered this year. In lieu of in-person auditions and judging, Scholarship applicants must meet the existing requirements as listed on the Guild website and submit the form as well as a video recording of their performance. A panel of adjudicators will view the video and make the decision whether to award Scholarship.
