In 2019, the Chapter determined that creating a Scholarship Program would be a wonderful entre for youth into the organ music world. Our Scholarship Program makes it possible for award winners to purchase organ shoes and repertoire as well as to pay qualified instructors.
Awardees are invited to participate in local Chapter activities which include playing for concerts, instruction with nationally performing artists and opportunities to play for worship at local congregations.
"These valuable experiences this past year with the Southern Illinois Chapter have influenced me to think more about my musical goals and encouraged me to work harder to achieve them."
Owen Cody, Scholarship Recipient
"As I finish high school, I am considering my options for continuing my musical studies into and beyond college --- If the opportunity arises, I would master in organ performance. No matter what I do in college, I want to be the best parish organist I can be."
Anastasia Curtis, Scholarship Recipient
