Voices of 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 High School music student. 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.

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. CDs are available at every public performance.

"Music has always been an important part of my life and I am excited for the opportunities that I may have in the coming years. The scholarship that you have given me will definitely help me achieve the goals that I have set for myself, and I am very thankful."
