The High Mowing Music Fund Scholarship Committee recently awarded five scholarships to High Mowing School students. Recipients of the 2011-12 awards are Zach Adinolfi '13 of Brookline, NH (Celtic lever harp); Fiona Graham '13 of Wilton, NH (harp); Christian Hoschek '12 of Temple, NH (viola); Hillary Renaud '13 of Hancock, NH (violin) and Nimrod Sadeh '13 of Wilton, NH (cello). Scholarships are available to young musicians to assist with the cost of music lessons, summer music camp and music festival application fees. The recipients of the 2011-12 awards have shown continued commitment to their musical studies over the course of several years.
The Sinfonietta, a community-based orchestra directed by Mark Ferguson, was also awarded a scholarship for the role it plays in community enrichment. Larger than a chamber ensemble but smaller than a full-size orchestra, the Sinfonietta offers a performance venue to students and adults in southern New Hampshire.
The High Mowing School Music Fund was established in memory of David Anderson '96. David was a lover of music, gifted cellist and remarkable member of the High Mowing community. Through the generosity of this fund, High Mowing is able to support young musicians and bring a variety of musical opportunities to the school.
