This past Sunday, April 22, the Oregon Cello Society held their annual scholarship auditions. The auditions were open to students in Oregon and SW Washington. The OCS auditions have several divisions and levels for students to participate in with awards at each level. The major award that the students were vying for was the Bud Armstrong Scholarship in the amount of $500.
This year, through the OCS auditions, Kennedy Violins awarded Hannah Burke, a talented young student, a Prodigy Coda Bow. Hannah is 11 years old and studies with Nancy Ives of the Oregon Symphony. We know that equipped with the new bow she will progress and continue to be successful in her cello studies.
