The Utah Baroque Ensemble would like to announce the results of their 7th annual scholarship competition, held on Friday, March 27th at the Orem Public Library.  Eight outstanding Utah County students selected as finalists performed for the public that evening. The recital was emceed by Roselle Stevenson.

Miriam Wagstaff, age 14, from Pleasant Grove, received the \$500 first-prize scholarship. She performed the 1stand 3rd movements of Arcangelo Corelli’s violin sonata no.1. She will perform again on Sunday, April 26th at the Utah Baroque Ensemble concert in Orem. A second scholarship of \$300 was awarded to Alexander Hawker, a senior from Springville.  He performed the Violin Sonata no. 5 (“La Folia”), also by Corelli, and will perform at the UBE concert on April 19th in Provo.
