WAILUKU – The Maui Pops Orchestra is pleased to announce the sixth year of the Auriol Flavell Student Scholarship Awards for Young Musicians.

These awards are intended for students who are pursuing higher education in the field of music, who play a symphony orchestra instrument and who plan to promote community orchestras on Maui or wherever they live in the future.

While the Maui community has lost one of its most ardent supporters of the performing arts – and especially of talented youth – the orchestra is delighted to have the community support to continue Auriol Flavell’s legacy with this annual scholarship opportunity.

Application forms are available at mauipops.org/scholarship. A written recommendation by a music instructor will be required to be submitted with the completed application form.

All applicants will need to state their graduating year of high school (or college) and should provide their clearly defined career and music education goals as indicated in the application.

All submissions must be received by Feb. 22, 2019, and addressed to Maui Pops Orchestra, 95 Mahalani St., Room 6, Wailuku, HI 96793.

The scholarship award will be presented on March 10, 2019 at the Maui Pops Spring Concert at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s Castle Theater.

Donations to the scholarship fund may be made payable to Maui Pops Orchestra.
