Holy Names Music Center holds an annual talent grant competition. This is an opportunity for HNMC students to perform for an adjudicator not affiliated with Holy Names Music Center and compete for a monetary award toward their music lessons in the coming year.
This year’s adjudicator was the very talented Jason Moody of the Spokane Symphony.
Fifteen students were recommended by their teachers to audition, eleven students accepted and nine were able to audition. The Music Center has a long history of awarding these grants to students who have talent and/or potential making it quite possible for a beginning student to win the grant!
Amanda Nguyen, violin, student of Mariana Dimitrova
Eva Iannelli, piano, student of Feng Tsai
Jillian Pomeroy, voice, student of Nancy Klingman
Maleny Mannino, voice, student of Nancy Klingman
Honorable Mentions receiving a $100 grant:
Elizabeth Persons, violin, student of Mariana Dimitrova
Noah Eddy, violin, student of Garnik Goukasian
All demonstrated outstanding musical competence, artistic sensibility, and promise.
Congratulations to these fine hardworking students and their teachers!
