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 2016-17.
   The Pratt Music Foundation Board of Directors reviewed 59 applications in June and selected 32 Pratt Music Foundation Scholars (and as always, there were more qualified applicants than scholarships available):

   The Pratt Music Foundation Scholar class of 2016-17 includes twenty-four students from Bloomington, six from Normal, and one each from Lexington and Washington. Fifteen students are studying piano, four study cello, three study viola, and ten study violin. Thirteen students attend District 87 schools, eight attend Unit 5 schools, four are home-schooled, three attend private schools, two attend the University Lab schools, one attends CUSD 51, and one attends CUSD 7. The thirty-two Pratt Music Foundation Scholars for 2016-17 represent an investment of $40,510 in the next generation of music in our community.

Bringing together 30 scholars at one time proved to be an impossible task, so slight variations in shadow and lighting are the results of photoshopping.
