The Laurel Lake Music Society of Columbus awarded the scholarships to: Samantha Bell, Daniel Burke, Jessie Fisher, Emily Gage, Anthony Guiliano, Tucker Lawson, Liana Stadelmann and Spencer Taunton.
The eight students participated in six concerts during the final four days of the intensive music program. Each received personalized instruction as well as concert training.
Daniel Burke was recognized for his performance in the percussion ensemble, under the direction of conductor Steve Barnhart, during a performance on July 19.
Since 1969, Cannon Music Camp has offered the most comprehensive course of musical instruction in the southeast, with intensive college preparatory work in performance and music theory.
