Scholarship Winners 2020

As you know, the COVID-19 shutdown forced the Santa Barbara Music Club to cancel not only its Spring Concert Series but also its Scholarship Program auditions. We were happy to discover that our talented young music students were finding ways to continue their studies, and with the COVID-19 shutdown, needed the scholarship awards more than ever. Our Scholarship Committee and the judges rose to the occasion and organized auditions by video. These videos varied in production standards: some were of concert quality and others were made on smartphones. Nevertheless, the judges were able to hear what they needed and award scholarships to the most deserving students.

The next challenge was to bring the talent of our scholarship winners to the public. As you also know, our popular Scholarship Concerts needed to be canceled as well. The Scholarship Committee and Board of Directors created a plan to post these videos on our website. We have obtained permission to post videos from the families of several of the students, as you will see below. Enjoy!
