The Zildjian family is pleased to announce the 2012 Kerope Zildjian Scholarship. This scholarship recognizes an outstanding student percussionist, who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate music program. In addition to a trip to the Zildjian factory in Norwell, Massachusetts to select complimentary cymbals, the winner will receive a tuition award of $5000.00
The scholarship was established by the Zildjian family to pay tribute to Kerope Zildjian, who presided over one of the most storied periods in the Company’s history. From 1865 until his death in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope Zildjian continued to develop the classic K. Zildjian sound, coveted by the world’s greatest percussionists. In memory of his deep commitment to the art of cymbal making, the Zildjian family has established a scholarship in his name to encourage and reward percussionists in their pursuit of performing excellence. To be considered for the scholarship, applications must be postmarked by June 1, 2012.
