Quincy University Music Department awarded four high school students the Virtuoso Music Scholarship for the fall semester. Students auditioned on February 22, 2020, for the four-year, full-tuition scholarship. Recipients were chosen at the discretion of the music faculty based on ensemble needs and the talent level of the candidates. The students are not required to major in music during their time at the university. 

Virtuoso Music Scholarship Recipients are James Boettger of Taylorville, Ill. majoring in business, Jesse Mose from St. Louis, Mo. majoring in music, Joseph Niemerg from Teutopolis, Ill. majoring in music, and Elizabeth Robertson from Quincy, majoring in forensic psychology.

 “We are thrilled to award these four talented students Virtuoso Music Scholarships. They will be an asset to both our instrumental and choral programs here at QU,” said Amy Stollberg, director of choirs.
