Amherst CHS Senior Receives BPO Young Musicians’ Scholarship for Voice

Jackson Kelly, a senior at Amherst Central High School, is the 2022 recipient of the Friends of the BPO Young Musicians’ Scholarship award of $1,000 for voice. He will be recognized at the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra’s Celebration of Music Education on May 14 at Kleinhan’s Music Hall. The scholarship audition process is extremely competitive  and rarely has a vocalist been selected for one of these awards. Jackson will have the prestigious opportunity to perform with the orchestra at some point this summer. He plans to attend State University of New York at Fredonia to major in music education.
