Congratulations to the recipients of the 2018 Young Musicians Program Bursary! All 12 applicants will receive a $125 bursary toward their musical education endeavors this year. We are thrilled to be able to provide this assistance to the young people of Cortes. All of the proceeds from our two fundraising concerts, as well as the donations at LoveFest and those we received directly have enabled us to increase the bursary this year by $25 per applicant. We also thank all of those who have donated to this fund and help make these bursaries possible. In addition, our thanks to the teachers who help encourage, inspire and support the youth on Cortes Island in their musical education. We will be looking for performers and volunteers for both the "Not So Young" and Young Musicians concerts, coming up in April and June 2019. Watch for more details, and if you are interested in participating, please contact Mary Clare at x6384.
