What is the Next Step Scholarship?

The Next Step Scholarship was created to help students that plan on taking the next step in their education. This merit scholarship is also a small token of our appreciation for your dedication and time spent in orchestra.

“I hope that the skills you have developed in orchestra such as hard work, professionalism, collaboration, and empathy will serve you well when you continue your education in college. The time you have spent with music and the people you meet through music will open doors for you that you never thought possible.”

Jonathan Chen - High School String Director
