From the Top Celebrates Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Program

Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award Program

Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award Program

From the Top’s radio broadcast this week, taped at the El Paso Summer Music Festival this past June, celebrates our partnership with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation and more than $1 million in scholarships awarded. The radio episode features five new Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award recipients and offers updates from past Young Artists about where this scholarship has taken them.

From the Top’s partnership with the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation has been one of the most transformative in our organization’s short history. Since 2005, we have awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to 100 exceptional young musicians (and counting), who despite financial barriers, strive to attain excellence in music and other areas of their lives.

In addition to providing young artists with an opportunity to perform on From the Top’s national broadcasts, the  up to $10,000 award helps to offset the often-prohibitively expensive costs of studying classical music at a high level. Award recipients may use their award for instrument purchases and summer music camps and fees.
