Scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $3,000 have been awarded by the Cascade Symphony Orchestra to five high school seniors from the, Mukilteo, Northshore, Edmonds, and Shoreline school districts.

Owen Cromwell and Andrew Shin – both of whom reside in Mukilteo and attend Kamiak High School – were each awarded $2,000 scholarships.

Cromwell, a violinist, will enter St. Olaf’s School of Music in Northfield, Minnesota this fall, taking on a double major in music and computer science.

Shin, who plays the viola, will attend Stanford University.

“We have been awarding scholarships to talented high school seniors for many years, because supporting music education is a high priority for the orchestra,” said Holly Sullivan, who is scholarship chair for the Cascade Symphony Orchestra.

The five students were among 17 who applied to the Cascade Symphony for consideration. Each provided an audition CD containing up to five minutes of their finest performance, without accompaniment. They were presented on stage during intermission of the Cascade Symphony’s “Mozart and Mahler” concert on May 6 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.
