As part of our effort to inspire young people to take up organ study, the Tampa Chapter of the AGO sponsors a competition for piano or beginning organ students. Open to people ages 18 and under, the winning entrant receives an award to study organ for one year with a qualified instructor. (The current scholarship is for $750). The award is named in honor of a long-time organist - Margaret Smith McAlister - and is funded by contributions received at our annual "Bach Birthday Bash" held in March each year.
The 2019 Scholarship Competition date is Monday, April 8, at 7 p.m. at Hyde Park United Methodist. Applications are due on March 18, 2019.
