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 2018-19.
The Pratt Music Foundation Board of Directors in June selected 34 Pratt Music Foundation Scholars (and as always, there were more qualified applicants than scholarships available):
The Pratt Music Foundation Scholarship Class of 2018-2019 includes 17 students from Bloomington, 14 from Normal, and one each from Washington, Heyworth, and Gridley.
Eighteen students study piano, seven study violin, two study viola, and four pursue the cello. Nine students attend District 87 schools, sixteen attend Unit 5 schools, four are home-schooled, three attend private schools (Epiphany, St. Mary's, and Cornerstone) one attends the Illinois Math and Science Academy, and one attends CUSD 51.
The thirty-four Pratt Music Foundation Scholars for 2018-2019 represent an investment (this year) of over $47,300 in the next generation of music in our community.
