Hours of hard work and practice time for Lawrence University senior Casey Kadlubowski have been rewarded with a $1,000 scholarship and a public recital.
Kadlubowski, a piano performance major from Marinette, performs Tuesday, July 8 at the Spies Public Library in Menominee, Mich., as the winner of the 2014 Menominee Area Arts Council (MAAC) John B. Henes Scholarship Award.
Her 40-minute free recital begins at 4:30 p.m. and will include works by Bartok, Beethoven, DeBussy and Faure.
She is a student in the piano studio of Assistant Professor Michael Mizrahi.
The $1,000 scholarship competition is open to incoming and current college students from the Marinette and Menominee area specializing in either visual or performing arts. Selection is based on letters of recommendation from both a current professor and member of the hometown community as well as a CD or DVD music portfolio of the student’s work.
Founded in 1957, the MAAC seeks to promote, educate, present and encourage support of arts in the local communities. In 2013, they established the John B. Henes Scholarship award, named after one its founders, in order to continue their mission and encourage growth of local young artists.
