Connor Shafran, Madison Central High School senior, received an Emerson scholarship to attend the Interlochen Arts Camp this summer. The scholarship will pay for his tuition, private lessons and room and board. Interlochen is the premier summer arts academy for high school aged students. To be eligible for the Emerson Scholarship, students must be in grades 9 through 12 and demonstrate exceptional skill and proficiency on harp, string, wind or percussion instruments.
“Every year Interlochen Arts Camp brings together some of the most talented and motivated students from around the world,” said Interlochen President Jeffrey S. Kimpton. “To be recognized as an Emerson Scholar puts these students in a most elite and prestigious group of talented people. It is quite an honor, not only for the students themselves, but also for the people and places that helped them to become the promising young musicians they are.”
Congratulations to Connor!
