Cascade School of Music is proud to announce 10 year old Guitar student, Aria Schnepf, has been awarded the $500 Rising Star Scholarship Award for 2016 – 2017.  Aria is a student of Randy McRill and the daughter of Zack and Jenna Schnepf of Bend.

The Rising Star Award recognizes students in years one and two of private instruction who exhibit talent, effort and achievement.  The students who receive this award have been nominated by their teachers as showing both great promise as musicians along with great perseverance and commitment to their craft. 

During Crescendo Bendo Community Music Day held on June 10th at the Tower Theatre, monthly Rising Star Award winners performed and a drawing was held for the $500 Rising Star Grand Prize Scholarship to continue their studies at Cascade School of Music. Aria performed Air, by Telemann and Fly By Night, by Rush.

“Aria sight reads very well and she attends lessons prepared through consistent practice,” says Randy McRill. “Aria loves playing the guitar and has progressed from being a bit shy to playing with enthusiasm.”

Award sponsors, Wabi Sabi and Just Joe’s Music provided monthly gifts for award winners.
