The Lowcountry Wind Symphony is accepting applications from local high school musicians for college scholarship consideration for 2021.
The LWS Music Scholarship Program was established in 2020 for students in instrumental, voice, or related music disciplines, who have chosen music as their college major and have been accepted into an accredited music program at the collegiate level.
Students must be enrolled and in good standing at the senior class level (Grade 12) in a Beaufort or Jasper County public or private school. Home-schooled youth and those who attend the Governors Schools, (whose parents reside in Beaufort or Jasper Counties), may be considered.
Additional application requirements, forms and application deadline are available at the LWS website: lowcountrywindsymphony.com.
The Lowcountry Wind Symphony, directed by Donald F. Jemella, is a concert band made up of some fifty amateur and professional brass, percussion, and wind players from the greater Beaufort area.
Those wishing to donate to the LWS Scholarship Fund may do so by check, payable to Lowcountry Wind Symphony, denoting LWS scholarship on the memo line. Send donations to Lowcountry Wind Symphony, P.O. Box 1526, Bluffton, S.C. 29910.
