Jamie Park of Cleveland, Ohio has been selected as the first recipient of the annual ISB Jane Little Scholarship. Jamie is a student of Tracy Rowell at the Cleveland Institute of Music's college preparatory program. She is a 2022 member of the National Youth Orchestra of the USA, a finalist in the 2021 National YoungArts Foundation Competition, 2020 winner of the Cleveland Institute of Music Preparatory Concerto Competition and the Suburban Symphony Orchestra Young Soloist Concerto Competition, and principal bass of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra from 2017-2020, among her many honors and achievements. Jamie is headed to Northwestern University this fall to study with Andrew Raciti.
Says Tom Knific, chair of the 2022 ISB Jane Little Scholarship selection committee, "The panel would like to congratulate all applicants for the artistry, integrity, and purposefulness of their applications. I can say to a person, we were all very moved by this process."
The $10,000 scholarship for freshmen double bass majors who identify as a woman was made possible by the generous support of an anonymous donor. The scholarship is given in honor and memory of Jane Little, former member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and celebrated as the longest serving professional orchestra musician in the world.
