Music Scholarship Program

Our first scholarship recipient our own music scholarship program is a junior vocalist from Spanish Springs HS, Amber Hurtado. Amber is an all-state selection in advanced chorale who will be receiving $500 worth of voice lessons from a local voice teacher courtesy of the RBS. Her chorale teacher, Richard Hutton said this in her application: “She has excelled as a chorister and soloist in genres ranging from Renaissance to Pop. Though she has not had much opportunity to explore Jazz and Blues, her improvisational skills and vocal color (rich mezzo soprano) would be perfect to explore these genres.” She has been invited to our Shane Dwight event and we will introduce her in-between Shane’s sets. If you know of other aspiring student musicians or vocalists, few have information on the application process on our website or reach out to me or any board member.
