Symphony Association

The Symphony Association has awarded many thousands of dollars in scholarship funds to talented young musicians who play in the orchestra. For many of these students this scholarship is in addition to other awards given by the Music Department of the Financial Aid Office. Association bylaws state that Symphony Association Scholarships are offered to the very best incoming students who it is felt can make a significant contribution to the University of Wyoming Symphony Orchestra during their first year at the University of Wyoming.

Potential University of Wyoming students interested in applying for Association scholarships need only to apply for financial aid from the Music Department. This will automatically make them eligible for Association scholarships as well.

This year's winners are:

Joel Alarcon, violin, Tegucigalpa, Honduras
Jung-Ching Chang, horn, Chiayi, Taiwan
Hao-Wei Hu, cello, Keeling, Taiwan
Theodore Kamenides, bassoon, Longmont, Colorado
Ross McIntosh, viola, Laramie
Ana Merchant (McGaw Award), Casper
Washington Pereira, viola, Brasilia, Brazil
Jessie Salas, cello, Pueblo, Colorado
Antonio Soria, cello, Albacete, Spain
Lilian Schmidt, flute, Houston, Texas
Thu Vo, cello, Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam

In addition, these students are recipients of Symphony Association McElhone scholarships, which fund engineering majors who also play in UWSO:


Sophia Helmkamp, violin, Parker, Colorado


Hayden Green, viola, Arvada, Colorado
Eloise Fadial, violin, Laramie
