|Suzanne E. Anderson Memorial
Suzanne E. Anderson was a founding member of the
Pocono Youth Orchestra Board of Directors in 1987, and served as a
valued member of our Board for 25 years. She dedicated her life to
creating and developing enrichment opportunities in music for the youth
of Monroe County. Suzanne strongly supported the mission of the Pocono
Youth Orchestra and the Pocono Junior String Orchestra, and upon her
death, the Orchestras received a much-appreciated gift from her Estate.
It was always Suzanne’s desire to establish a scholarship for qualified
students within the ensemble to further their music education.
In January 2014, the Pocono Youth Orchestra announced the inauguration
of the PYO Suzanne E. Anderson Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship
is presented to a graduating senior member of the PYO, through the
process of a written application, followed by a solo performance and an
interview before the members of the PYO Scholarship Committee.
The first $500.00 annual award was presented to clarinetist, Eric Papa,
at the Spring Concert performance on May 31, 2014 in the Cecilia S.
Cohen Recital Hall at East Stroudsburg University.
