JSV Scholarships

The Timoteus Racz Memorial Scholarship: This scholarship is named after our late Founder and Artistic Director, Timoteus Racz – violinist, composer, conductor and teacher. He was passionate about music performance and education, and embodied the essence of professionalism and integrity in every aspect of his life. This scholarship goes to an outstanding JSV member and gives them free tuition for the upcoming season.

Lori Buerkle Scholarship: Lori Buerkle is a longtime OCP/JSV board member who has shown outstanding service and dedication over the years, and this awards a winning string player $200 for music lessons. (This seemed appropriate as we first met Lori when she came to Timoteus for violin lessons!)

(Conductor Collin Heade with Lori Buerkle)

Board of Director’s Scholarship: This scholarship awards a winning wind player $200 for music lessons.
