Marilyn Anderson Young Musician’s Award

Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival 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 who have demonstrated this value with a scholarship to be used toward their ongoing studies.
