Cedarville, OhioFrom January 28 through February 12, Cedarville University music students will be seen (and heard) throughout Greene County. Their mission: to raise money for music scholarships by giving sponsored performances throughout the area.
Each student will give free music performances throughout Greene County at various times and locations. The students are looking for supporters to either sponsor their performance times by the minute or to make a flat donation. One hundred percent of all money raised will go to the Music Student Scholarship Fund and will be awarded annually by the Cedarville University Department of Music and Art to students with unmet financial need. No music scholarship of this kind currently exists.
The marathon is sponsored by Sigma Delta Gamma, the University music student service organization. "The marathon, with the help of the rest of the music students and their sponsors, will be our way of contributing to the future of music education at Cedarville," said junior music performance and political science major Emmett Robinson. "Unlike a mere fundraising drive," the Greenwich, Ohio, native continued, "the marathon will provide Cedarville students with valuable performance experience."
Persons interested in learning more or making a pledge or donation should contact the Cedarville University Gift Planning Office at 937-766-7804.
