The Lima Area Concert Band has awarded its 2022 Woolley Scholarship to Ava Boedicker from Spencerville High School. Ava won the competition with a nearly flawless performance of Eugene Bozza’s Pulcinella. Ava will be attending Bowling Green State University in the fall. Congratulations, Ava!
We, the members of the Lima Area Concert Band, have continued to utilize and enjoy what was begun early in life, on the day a musical instrument was first placed in our hands. What was introduced by a music teacher, supported by family members, and developed by a band director, has provided us with a valuable gift that has stood the test of time.
As you prepare to graduate, we want to encourage you to transition into your college experience with instrument in hand. You do not have to be a music major to benefit from, and to enjoy, what you have already accomplished on your instrument. Each year, in a small effort to “pay it forward”, we offer a $1,000.00 scholarship to a high school senior who plans to continue playing a wind or percussion instrument in college.
The 2022 auditions will be in person. We ask you to fill out this form by April 30, 2023 and we will work with you to schedule an audition.
Your information will then be forwarded to our LACB Scholarship Chairperson, Lucy Altstaetter.
