Says Tom Knific, chair of the 2023 ISB Jane Little Scholarship selection committee, "The panel would like to congratulate all applicants — it was a plethora of talent!"
The $10,000 scholarship for female double bass majors entering college as a freshman 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 one of the longest serving professional orchestra musicians in the world.
