Matinée Musicale Cincinnati Seeks Young Instrumentalists and Singers
To Compete for the Nancy F. Walker Memorial Scholarships 
High school sophomores and juniors and college sophomores and juniors
are invited to apply

Cincinnati (March 8, 2018) — Young musicians from across the Tristate* are invited to compete for the Nancy F. Walker Memorial Scholarships (ranging from $1,000 to $2,500) for singers and instrumentalists now being offered by Matinée Musicale Cincinnati. These have been made possible by recent generous donations in memory of Nancy Fuldner Walker (photo, left), and a bequest from the estate of Louise Dieterle Nippert.
Matinée Musicale Cincinnati has presented memorable classical music recitals by rising professional musicians since 1912. Performers who have gone on to illustrious careers — from pianists Nadia Boulanger and Leon Fleisher to violin prodigy Joshua Bell and singers including Beverly Sills and Jamie Barton (who just sang for a sold-out audience at Memorial Hall in January) — constantly praise the recital series’ renowned reputation. 
As an extension of its longtime mission to advance the careers of young instrumentalists and singers, Matinée Musicale invites applications from sophomores and juniors in high school and sophomores and juniors in college. Categories and scholarship award amounts are: High School Instrumental ($1,500, $1,200 and $1,000); High School Vocal ($1,500, $1,200 and $1,000); College Instrumental ($2,500, $2,000 and $1,500); and College Vocal ($2,500, $2,000 and $1,500).
Application forms and details are available online: www.matineemusicalecincinnati.orgAll applications must be received via email by Monday, April 2, 2018.
Auditions will be held on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at St. Paul United Methodist Church (8221 Miami Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45243). Applicants are expected to perform 8-10 minutes of memorized music in at least two contrasting classical styles.
The top scholarship recipients in each category will perform at the Scholarship Winner Recital & Luncheon on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at the Greenacres Art Center, 8400 Blome Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45243.
Nancy F. Walker, memorialized by these scholarships, was a musician, music teacher and strong advocate for all music and arts organizations. She provided able leadership to Matinée Musicale for more than four decades before her death in October 2017. Matinée Musicale Cincinnati is honoring her legacy of support and encouragement of young musicians through these scholarships.
