International Bass Clarinet Association - I.B.C.A., International Clarinet Association - I.C.A. and European Clarinet Association - E.C.A. are proud announce the creation of the Harry Sparnaay Scholarship for aspiring young bass clarinetists.
Thank to the I.C.A., part of the funds raised during our year-long capital campaign on YouCaring will go toward implementing an annual scholarship fund to send one young bass clarinetist to perform at ClarinetFest® each year (ages 18 to 30).
Interested applicants will need to send a resume, biography, essay, and recordings to ICA Treasurer, Tod Kerstetter. Details will be posted on the ICA ClarinetFest® page soon.
To donate for the scholarship please write: "for the Harry Sparnaay Scholarship" in the Message box of the YouCare donation form.
Thank you so much for your help!
