Welcome to the Pratt Music Foundation.
   Our mission is the support of classical music in our community, primarily through scholarships for deserving youth.


The Pratt Music Scholars for 2015-16.
   The Pratt Music Foundation Board of Directors reviewed 55 applications in June and selected 30 Pratt Music Foundation Scholars (and as always, there were more qualified applicants than scholarships available):

   The Pratt Music Foundation Scholarship class of 2015-16 includes 20 students from Bloomington, 5 from Normal, and one each from Green Valley, Lexington, Carlock, Washington, and Gridley. Ten students are studying piano, 5 study cello, 3 study viola, and 12 study violin. Thirteen students attend District 87 schools, 7 attend Unit 5 schools, 4 are home-schooled, 3 attend private schools, one attends the University Lab schools, and one attends CUSD 7. The thirty Pratt Music Foundation Scholars for 2015-16 represent an investment of $37,500 in the next generation of music in our community.
