The four-year, highly competitive scholarships are awarded to students who excel in Film, Performing Arts (dance, music and theatre arts- including performance and production), Visual Arts and Writing.

Many Festival of Arts scholarship recipients have gone on to have successful careers in the arts, including owning art studios, securing major roles in film production, and working in fashion, to name a few.

So, deck the halls and get rockin’ around the tree with an intimate performance by Pianist Scott Wilkie featuring his unique arrangements of holiday favorites, joined by guitarist Pat Kelley, bassist Nathan Brown, and drummer Jeff Olson.
