Congratulations to our own Kayla Sconiers, who was awarded the prestigious William Warfield Scholarship from the Eastman School of Music! Kayla is in her junior year at Eastman, and will receive the award at a benefit concert on Sunday, January 22nd at 3:00pm in Kilbourn Hall. 

“Being the recipient of the William Warfield Scholarship is an immense privilege and self-confidence boost for me as an African American performer in the arts,” says Kayla. “This network of trailblazers inspires me to achieve my goals and aspirations. As I grow and gain new knowledge from the program, I will carry the experience with me – forever – by encouraging others along the way.”
