Rachel Read, a senior music education major, was awarded the “Philip H. Inman Excellence in Choral Conducting Arts Scholarship Award” in December, 2016 at the annual Beaver Valley Choral Society concert at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, Beaver Falls, PA.
"Rachel was recommended by the Music Faculty at Westminster to the Beaver Valley Choral Society,” says Dr. Daniel Perttu, associate professor of music and chair of the School of Music. “I am thrilled that she was selected. She is an exemplary student here and certainly represents the values embodied by the award. She truly deserves the honor." Read is a daughter of Robert and Ruth Read and a graduate of Penn-Trafford High School.
The Philip H. Inman Excellence in Choral Conducting Arts Scholarship Award is presented annually to an exceptionally qualified junior, senior, or post-graduate music student enrolled in one of five colleges in western Pennsylvania; Carnegie Mellon University; Duquesne University; Geneva College; Grove City College; and Westminster College.
According to the Beaver Valley Choral Society, the “Philip H. Inman Excellence in Choral Conducting Arts Scholarship” was created to honor Mr. Inman’s lifelong dedication to the study and performance of fine choral music.
