Welcome to the Pratt Music Foundation.
   Our mission is the support of classical music in our community, primarily through scholarships for deserving youth.

The Pratt Music Scholars for 2017-18.
   The Pratt Music Foundation Board of Directors reviewed 59 applications in June and selected 33 Pratt Music Foundation Scholars (and as always, there were more qualified applicants than scholarships available):

   The Pratt Music Foundation Scholarship Class of 2017-18 includes 23 students from Bloomington, 9 from Normal, and one from Washington. Sixteen students study piano, nine study violin, four study viola, and four pursue the cello. Ten students attend District 87 schools, fourteen attend Unit 5 schools, three are home-schooled, three attend private schools, one attends the University Lab schools, one attends the Illinois Math and Science Academy, and one attends CUSD 51.
   The thirty-three Pratt Music Foundation Scholars for 2017-18 represent an investment of over $40,000 in the next generation of music in our community.
