The Zildjian family has announced the 2013 Kerope Zildjian Scholarship, which recognizes an outstanding student percussionist who is currently enrolled in an undergraduate music program.  In addition to a $5,000 tuition award, the scholarship recipient will win a trip to the Zildjian factory in Norwell, Massachusetts to select complimentary cymbals.

The scholarship is an opportunity for the Zildjian family to pay tribute to Kerope Zildjian who presided over one of the most storied periods in the Company’s history.  From 1865 until his death in 1909 in Constantinople, Kerope continued to develop the classic K. Zildjian sound, coveted by the world’s greatest percussionists.  In memory of Kerope’s deep commitment to the art of craftsmanship, the Zildjian family established this scholarship to encourage and reward percussionists in their pursuit of performing excellence.

The deadline for submitting materials is May 31, 2013. For more information and the application procedure, visit zildjian.com/Education/Scholarships/Kerope-Zildjian-Concert-Percussion-Scholarship.
