Musical Bridges Youth Holiday Concert
FREE and Open to the Public – Tickets Required for Entry.
Talented piano and string players of The Gurwitz Youth Ambassadors and Colburn-Pledge Music Scholarship come together to share their passion for music!
Gurwitz Youth Ambassadors are advanced piano students 18 years or under from the greater San Antonio area who are involved in community engagement efforts on behalf of The Gurwitz International Piano Competition. This includes playing in schools or community groups, attending/participating in masterclasses, or speaking with students on why they chose piano.
The Colburn-Pledge Music Scholarship provides tuition aid to Texas string players who are preparing for careers in classical music. Started in 1985 by former San Antonio Symphony members John Pledge and Lois Colburn, the program has to date given 133 scholarships totaling more than $99,000 to 72 different students. As of 2021, the scholarship now resides under the management of Musical Bridges Around the World.
