Meet our winners!
It is the goal of SRCS to promote the cultural enrichment and fulfillment found through music study and performance, and it is our sincere hope that participants will reap those rewards throughout your life.
The SRCS Scholarship Winners are often invited to be featured performers at a future Choral Society performance. Invitation are made based on the needs of the Artistic Director. Winners will receive their scholarship award at their respective high school Senior Awards event.
The 2021 winner of the Piano Scholarship is Mr. Ryan Leith, a senior at North Stafford High School. Ryan is a well-rounded musician having started his piano studies at age 6, and lending his extraordinary musical gifts to three ensembles at North Stafford: Wind Ensemble (trombone), Jazz Ensemble (Bass), and the Big Blue Marching Band (Bass, Keyboards). In addition to being an exceptional and versatile musician, Ryan is also an impressive scholar with a 3.9 GPA.
