Help Make a Young Musician’s Dream Come True
deeply honored that this scholarship fund carries my name. It is my
deepest hope that you will respond to the great need among our members. It is very noble to give students the possibility to tour."
- Dr. Camilla Kolchinsky
The Kolchinsky Scholarship Fund, named in honor of ECYS Conductor Emeritus Dr. Camilla Kolchinsky (1931-2016), provides need-based financial assistance for the Senior Symphony International Concert Tour.
As an internationally recognized conductor and a remarkable pedagogue, Dr. Kolchinsky not only taught, but also inspired musicians. She had a lasting and profound impact on students, who continued to benefit from their musical experiences with her long after they graduated from ECYS.
Born to a poor Jewish family in Moscow, were it not for the assistance from her teachers, Dr. Kolchinsky would not have been able to rise above hardships and became an internationally renowned conductor. Camilla cared deeply about our young musicians in need of financial help.
This scholarship fund will provide financially challenged Senior Symphony students with the same opportunity as their peers to have a life-changing tour experience. Giving to the scholarship is the best way to honor the legacy of Dr. Kolchinsky!
