Music for All President and CEO, Eric Martin with scholarship winner Leah Warman.

The 2017 William D. Revelli Scholarship was awarded to Leah Warman of Thompson High School in Alabaster, Alabama on Saturday, March 11th during the Gala Awards Banquet at the Music for All National Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana.

This annual scholarship of $1,000 was created in memory of Dr. William D. Revelli, one of America’s finest and most accomplished conductors, to help one graduating high school senior each year that is performing at the Music for All National Festival study music education at the university level. Each recipient is chosen based upon his or her academic, musical and community service accomplishments, a personal essay written about music education and a nomination from a his or her band director.

Leah is a two-time Honor Band of America member, and has performed in a variety of university, district, and state honor bands. As first chair in wind ensemble and trombone section leader in the marching band, Leah discovered that she has a passion for helping others realize their musical potential. Her servant leadership will serve her well as a music educator.

Since each recipient must intend to pursue a degree in music education, this scholarship has become an extension of Music for All’s mission to create, provide, and expand positively live-changing experiences through music for all. Music for All also offers opportunities for students, parents, and directors to perform and improve their musical and leadership skills through its workshops, competitions, festivals, and honor ensembles.

Music for All will continue to offer this scholarship in future years and encourages all qualifying students to apply. The application for next year’s scholarship will be released in late 2017.
