2016 Kerope Zildjian Concert Percussion Scholarship
The Zildjian family is pleased to announce the twelfth annual Kerope Zildjian Scholarship Competition. This scholarship recognizes an outstanding student percussionist, who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate music program.
At the same time, establishing this scholarship is an opportunity for the family to pay tribute to Kerope, who presided over one of the most-storied periods in Zildjian history. From 1865 until his death in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope continued to develop the classic K. Zildjian sound, coveted by the world’s greatest percussionists. In memory of Kerope’s deep commitment to the art of craftsmanship, the Zildjian family established this scholarship to encourage and reward percussionists in their pursuit of performing excellence.
To be considered for the scholarship, applications must be postmarked by Friday June 10th, 2016.
The Scholarship winner will receive the following:
- A $5000 college tuition award.
- An all expense paid trip to Zildjian’s world headquarters to hand select a variety of complimentary cymbals.
- One year’s membership to the Percussive Arts Society
