Congrats to Jacob Titus Music Scholarship Winner, Hailey Brown!

Congratulations to Hailey Brown for receiving a Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarship!

Hailey has been playing violin for six years, since she was eleven years old. As her instructor Anna Boyle describes, "From the first lessons that I taught her, Hailey was a cheerful and willing learner. I’ve seen her love for music as well as her skill and talent grow and blossom. Three years ago, Hailey auditioned and was accepted into the Youth Orchestras of Charlotte’s Preparatory Orchestra, one of the top competitive youth symphonies in the area. She raised her own tuition money ($600 per year) and commuted over an hour each week to rehearsals. This past year, Hailey was accepted into the most advanced orchestra in the Youth Orchestras of Charlotte program. The week after her first rehearsal, Hailey sent me an excited text telling me about the music she would be playing." Hailey's performing had long surpassed the quality of her student violin and it was past time to upgrade. Anna described, "Her current violin has served her well, but a nicer violin would meet a need in Hailey’s continued musical education."

We are so pleased to be able to help fill this need with a Jacob Titus Youth Music Scholarship toward the purchase of Hailey's new violin!

Thank you to Tamara Titus & Lane Jacobs for launching this youth music scholarship opportunity with Tosco Music in 2019, and to everyone who has added their own contributions to this special scholarship fund to honor the memory of Jacob Titus.
