ECB Suppports Young Musicians

Awards and Grants

We are proud to play an active role in the continuing education and encouragement of young musicians. Our scholarships exist to keep their enthusiasm and interest in music alive.

ECB sponsors an annual scholarship competition to promote the musical development of students ages 13 - 18, who reside in Alameda or Contra Costa counties. Winners receive cash scholarships and perform for ECB at the winners' concert in May.

A second grant, funded by a bequest from Maria Homem, is awarded annually to a music education program. The Homem award targets music education programs that create opportunities for underserved children and youth.
