Penny Turner Young Artist Award

About the Penny Turner Young Artist Award

Penny Turner Young Artist Award, a scholarship competition created by IWBC Board Member Ginger Turner in honor of her late mother, Penny Turner. Ginger says of her inspiration to create the award:

My Mom played the cornet growing up and was a band director for a few years. She never experienced anything like IWBC in her youth and she thought it was the coolest. We always tried to get her to a conference but her health and my schedule never made it happen. She was able to attend a number of the Baltimore Holiday Brass Concerts and really enjoyed the music and the community created through that experience. I thought a scholarship in her name would help keep her connected to the organization that she so loved.”

The competition is open to all female brass players between the ages of 12-18; their music teachers or private instructors may nominate competitors.
