The Steingart family established this scholarship fund prior to Mr. Steingart's passing earlier this year. They saw their daughter Emily's world change in positive ways when she pursued the bassoon in middle school. Emily's love of music presented her with the opportunity to play with the Portland Youth Symphony, as well as the Youth Philharmonic (in Boston) while she was in high school. Her talent and dedication opened the door to some prestigious awards and opportunities, including traveling to China with the Youth Philharmonic orchestra.
The Steingart family met with Mr. C. to present HMS with a check for $5000.00 for the purpose of funding years of private lessons for our students. The family wants to provide opportunities to other young musicians so they can explore and expand their own world of music, and all that it may bring into their lives.
The scholarships are presented to students who have a love for music, and are committed to their craft. Taylor is a most deserving recipient of this award!
