Gifted Musician Scholarships

Gifted Musician Scholarships Outstanding instrumentalists who will be new students at Upper Columbia Academy (UCA), Spangle, Wash., this next year may qualify for gifted musician scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,000 each. Students already playing at the 2.5 level or higher can arrange to audition in person or can send a tape to Jerry Lange, band director. These scholarships are being provided by generous former band members and their parents who deeply appreciate the experience they had in Lange’s band and would like other students to have that same opportunity. This is the second year that music scholarships have been available. For the 2002-03 school year, $15,000 in gifted musician scholarships benefited eleven students. In addition to the regular band concert schedule, other band ensembles perform frequently on Sabbaths in area churches, including the brass quintet, brass choir, flute ensemble, sax quartet, percussion ensemble and trumpet sextet.

UCA’s music department also offers outstanding choral and keyboard departments under the direction of Curtis Anderson and Wafia Kinne. Instruction in guitar and other stringed instruments is also available.
