Please join us in Stencel Hall for an evening of performances by 31 of our outstanding students. These gifted young musicians are being honored for their hard work, and we are delighted to be able to present a number of scholarships on this evening.
Friends and family of these musicians are urged to attend, but anyone interested in exploring music lessons through the Conservatory of Music at Taylor -- or anyone who appreciates fines music -- will find this to be a fun and informative evening.
There is no charge to attend.

TAYLOR SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
1. Daly Family Scholarship
In honour of performer and teacher Eileen Arnold Daly (1920-2008) funds have been donated to Taylor by family members to assist with the education of students, specifically piano students.
2. Taylor Conservatory Student Scholarships
Money raised by faculty performances and odd fund raisers will be pooled and divided between studio teachers for annual awards for their best students. These students will also perform in an annual awards recital to be held in June of each year.
Other scholarships will arise as we continue to grow and develop. Stay tuned to see how we do with supporting our students!
