Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival Board President Sam Coleman presented two $500 awards to graduating seniors Brigid Ehrmantraut and Eric Eagan during Orcas High School’s “Celebration of Success” ceremony June 13, 2014. Intended to “honor students who have demonstrated that music is an important element in his/her life through playing an instrument, composing or mixing music, or recording music,” the award is named for and supported by Director Emeritus Marilyn Anderson for her dedication to music education. In his comments, Sam noted that Brigid has excelled as a composer, student of the viola, performer, and member of the Orcas Youth Orchestra. Eric’s letters of support and application applauded his life-long love of music and performance skills as a clarinetist. Congratulations Young Musicians! The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival encourages you to continue your love of music as an integral part of your lives going forward.
