Young Musician’s Award

Each year, OICMF recognizes the importance of music in our lives, from youth through maturity. Named for a founding Board member’s work on behalf of music in our island schools, the Marilyn Anderson Young Musician’s Award honors graduating high school seniors whose dedication to musical pursuits demonstrates this value.
