This spring, Houston-area students ages 12 to 18, were encouraged to apply for Music Doing Good Scholarships, which provide funding for outstanding music students demonstrating financial need. Applications were received from all over Houston and the surrounding areas. Fourteen students earned scholarships in various categories to pursue private lessons, music workshops and tuition through an educational institution. The deadline to submit applications was March 15, 2013 and the scholarships were announced and awarded at a concert with the Conrad Johnson Orchestra at the Hobby Center for the Performing Arts on April 20th. There were two special honors created this year: The Conservatory Award for a student attending college in 2013-14 school year demonstrating stellar musicianship; and The Service Award for students dedicated to community service through music. Music Doing Good was impressed by the talent and tenacity of every scholarship recipient.
