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:

Allen Burki, bass, Cheyenne
Joseph DePoyster, bassoon, Rock Springs (McGaw Award)
Brendan Inkster, horn, Ithaca, New York
Chase Jordan, viola, Bozeman, Montana
Rachel Laker, horn, Batesville, Indiana
Josh Lundquist, trumpet, Lakewood, Colorado
Emily Nazario, flute, Ithaca, New York
Kristina Zeinstra, viola, Zeeland, Michigan

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


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


Cameron Ellis, violin, Sheridan
David Golligly, violin, Princeton, New Jersey
Heath Richards, viola, Fremont, Nebraska
