Thanks the generosity of our wonderful donors, the Top of the Rock Peggy Gram Scholarship Fund raised $2,170 at its yearly benefit concert on Feb. 12.
Held at Presbyterian Kirk in the Pines in Hot Springs Village, attendees were treated to performances by Top of the Rock Chorus, Treble in the Village, Random Mix, Roundelay and Harmony on the Rocks.
“We are so grateful for the support that we have received for the Peggy Gram Scholarship Fund,” said Sharon Gardner, who organized the benefit and leads fundraising efforts for the scholarship.
The Top of the Rock Peggy Gram Scholarship Fund provides scholarships specifically to women involved in music education or vocal performance education at the secondary level to assist in the furtherance of their music education.
The scholarship is named in honor of Peggy Gram for her more than 40 years as director of Top of the Rock Chorus.
Lexie Ellis, a vocal music education major at Arkansas Tech University, is the 2022 recipient of the scholarship. Past recipients include Megan Ahne (2018), Haley O'Meara (2019), Alyssa Fraley (2020) and Veronica West (2021).
Applications for the 2023 scholarship are being accepted and are due by April 15. More information is available at topoftherockchorus.com.
