Chione is thrilled to be able to offer three scholarship opportunities for quINTENS!VE 2018. Please read about each and share with us your personal statement and what a quINTENS!VE scholarship would mean to you.
Mary Amarmino Oboe Scholarship
Personal Statement from our donor:
"Mary Amormino is the reason why I still play music as an adult. She made all of my school and summer camp concerts, and competitions, and celebrated all of my accomplishments, being in music or academics. She was a loving mother and grandmother who was enthusiastic about everything in life. Since she believed in me so much as a kid, I now hope to emulate her in supporting the dreams of the younger generation in my life."

Maestoso Music Studio Student Scholarship

A Music Studio By Teachers for Students
Lara Dietrich founded Maestoso Music Studio in 2013 as a place for music teachers in St. Louis Park and surrounding Minnesota suburbs to connect with local students. The instructors at Maestoso offer instruction to students of all ages. Maestoso features individual studios, as well as a large ensemble room for rehearsals, classes and recitals.
Fox Products Double Reed Scholarship (Oboe or Bassoon)
This scholarship is for oboists and bassoonists. FOX PRODUCTS CORPORATION is an American Manufacturer of bassoons, contrabassoons, oboes and English horns. The founder of the company, HUGO FOX, was an American bassoonist. In his time as principal bassoon of the Chicago Symphony (1922-49), he conceptualized the possibility of world-class bassoons made in the United States. During the summer after his retirement in 1949, Mr Fox returned to his home town of Soth Whitley, Indiana, where he opened shop in pursuit of this goal.
Warren Manyara Clarinet Scholarship
Warren grew up surrounded by music. In his home, they had a cherished collection of cassettes and LP records - even 45 rpm vinyl records! When the radio was silent (often because the batteries had been exhausted), it was his mother's beautiful voice that provided the melody. Warren has always enjoyed singing at church and grew to love many, many hymns. His aspiration is to share the wonderful message and music in hymns with church audiences and to help bring the beauty of instrumental music to worship services. He believes that music is one of life's purest pleasures and is excited to help Chione nurture the next generation of young musicians.
