N E w CoLLEGE SARASOTA, FLORIDA 33578 1 150 -3/28/68 813 /355-71 3 1 Ref.: Furman c. Arthur FOR USE: SUNDAY, MARCH 31, 1968 SARASOTA--Sixteen area student musicians have been named as eligible for scholarships for the fourth annual New College Summer Music Festival which opens May 31. To help to provide the scholarship funds to enable these and other young people to take part in the Festival, the New College String Quartet is offering a benefit performance at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 10 at College Hall on the New College campus. Each year, festival Director Paul Wolfe has sought out talented young musicians, many of them local students, to attend the Festival and to study under the renowned musicians who serve on the festival faculty. This year, the students will be eligible to receive scholarships to study with Wolfe, oboist Robert Bloom, violist Walter Trampler, flutist Julius Baker, cellist Bernard Greenhouse, French horn player John Barrows, bassist Gaston Dufresne, pianist Leonid Hambro, clarinetist Robert Marcellus, and bassoonist Sol Schoenbach. more
NEW COLLEGE Page 2 Named from Manatee High School was violist Pam Berner, and from Riverview High School, pianist and cellist Anita Swartzendruber. Nine students from Manatee Junior College will be eligible for scholarships to take part in the festival. They are pianist and clarinetist Cindy Garner, pianist Alice Jones, violinist Alan Kandler, violinist Kenneth Bowermeister, French horn player Olin Jones, oboist William Star, oboist Lyric Stouder, cellist Joanne Herema and flutist Michelle Gregoire. From New College, five students are eligible. They are flutist Cheryl McWhorter, clarinetist Judy Abel, French horn players Michael Egerton and Rebecca Rishell, and trumpet player Deane Root. Through its four years, Dr. Arthur R. Borden Jr., administrative director of the festival, and Wolfe have attempted to build up the scholarship to permit more and more talented young musicians to take part in the instruction and performances of the festival. Although the festival has not yet been developed financially to a point that would provide scholarships, donors have been found to underwrite some of the students' tuition. This year the benefit performance of the New College String Quartet was conceived as another way to supplement the scholarship fund and permit more students to attend.
