Reaching Out to Young Musicians


               Since 2006, an important component of IRSA’s mission has been to foster and support music students and music education in Indian River County. To date, the Symphonic Association (IRSA) has awarded $108,000 in Scholarship grants to 33 Indian River County graduating seniors.

               The scholarship program, awarded by IRSA through the Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County, continues to award $10,000 to a high school graduating senior who plans to attend an accredited university and major in music.  

               Gregory Stevens from Sebastian River High School is the most recent winner of this prestigious award. An accomplished euphonium player, Greg has now completed his first year at the University of North Texas College of Music. "Greg's dream is to perform as a member of one of our country's premier military bands such as the United States Marine Band, and then to teach in order to share his love and his passion for music with young musicians.  To learn more about the foundation please visit


                        Exciting Expansion of Our Awards Program

               This year, in addition to giving this award through the Scholarship Foundation of Indian River County, your Symphonic Association will now be reaching out to younger music students as well. We will be supporting local music programs and schools throughout the county with special assistance grants. We’ll also be helping individual music students at all levels of proficiency to pay for their music instruction.

               Your continued generosity and support, and the enthusiasm of our concert audiences, allow us to encourage these young, aspiring musicians, fostering their love and appreciation of good music.
