QU Announces Fall 2022 Virtuoso Scholarship Recipients
The Music Department at Quincy University has awarded three high school students the Virtuoso Music Scholarship for the fall semester. The students auditioned on February 19, 2022 for the full four-year scholarship. Recipients were chosen at the discretion of the music faculty based on the needs of the ensemble and the talent level of the applicants. Students are not required to major in music while at university.
The recipients of the Virtuoso Music Scholarship are Chloe Jenson from St. Anthony High School in Effingham, Illinois, majoring in biology; Lora Launer of Warsaw High School in Warsaw, Illinois, majoring in music education and Alanna Edgecomb of Camp Point Central High School in Quincy, Illinois, majoring in music.
“QU’s music faculty were so impressed with the level of musicianship and academic background of each of the students who auditioned,” said Christine Damm, DMA dean of the school of fine arts and communications. “We are very pleased to offer the Virtuoso Music Scholarship to three outstanding students whose hard work, dedication and talent have truly paid off. These students will lend their talents to many QU music ensembles and become part of the QU musical family.”
