Voice off Jazz Annual Scholarship Program
Voices of Jazz, as a non-profit organization, strives each year to award a $1,000 scholarship to two local high school students. One award, the Danny Mariscal Memorial Scholarship Award is presented to a Dunedin HS music student who is going on to college. The second is awarded to another local student selected from the nominees provided by our members. We are proud of this tradition and count on the small performance fees and listener gratuities to make this happen each year.
Below is a "Thank You" note that we recently received from one of the grateful music students who was awarded the VOJ scholarship in 2016:
In addition, we also offer a music CD of 20 live performances at a cost of $10. All of these monies go toward our scholarship fund. You can buy a CD at every public performance.
