Dear Friends,

It is my pleasure to announce the sixth annual Fred Kelley Scholarship Concert, taking place on Sunday, May 5th at 2:30pm in the RISD Museum Grand Gallery

This concert is presented each year to support Community MusicWorks students who wish to attend the Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music in Nelson, New Hampshire during the summer months. Apple Hill is a unique organization that brings together musicians from diverse backgrounds and cultures to play chamber music through their Playing for Peace program. It's a place very dear to my heart and I have taught there each summer since 2004.

Last year was a milestone for the Fred Kelley Scholarship Fund. Through donations, we raised enough to send a full quartet of CMW students to Apple Hill where they received intensive coaching on a Shostakovich quartet. They had a fabulous time growing their musicianship over the summer and we hope to offer this opportunity to at least four students this year.
