11 SRU MUSIC STUDENTS TO VIE FOR CHAD WILLIAMSON MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

          SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. – Eleven Slippery Rock University music students will vie for top honors in the annual Chad Williamson Memorial Scholarship Competition set for 7 p.m. Nov. 1 in SRU’s Swope Recital Hall.

          This year’s competition will be judged by Jennifer Davis Jones a member of the voice faculty at Youngstown State University’s Dana School of Music and Ashland University. Jones undertook Italian studies at L’Universita per Strangieri a Perugia and has studied voice with the Merola Opera Program at the San Francisco Opera Center, the Young Artist Program of the Greater Miami Opera Association, as well as work with the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, the Chautauqua Opera Company and the College Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati where she earned her bachelor of music degree. She has performed nationally, including work in New York City, Cincinnati, Des Moines and San Francisco.

           The decade-old scholarship competition, one of the most popular in the music department, provides SRU music majors the opportunity to demonstrate their vocal talent and allows the local community to both see and hear the performing arts talent of university voice students. The scholarship was created by Mr. Williamson’s family as a means of helping Slippery Rock University’s music department attract talented vocal performers.
