Paulina Ray-Zorick played two preludes by Debussy: “La fille aux cheveux de lin,” and “La sérénade interrompue.”

Lastly, Rachel Richards performed on her cello J. S. Bach’s “Sarabande” and “Minuet” from Unaccompanied Suite, no. 1.

FMC is proud of these students to whom it presented scholarships this year. They are among the many qualified students to whom, since 1994, the Foothills Music Club Inc. has awarded more than $38,000 in scholarships.

FMC appreciates very much the support it receives from the surrounding community, enabling it to administer a strong scholarship program, which identifies students such as these featured in the “Stars of Tomorrow” performance. FMC is now a 501(c)3 designated organization, and all contributions are tax deductible.
