Naomi Crews • Features • April 7, 2015

Music for All has chosen Mikaela Ray of Franklin H.S. in Franklin, Tenn. as the 2015 William D. Revelli Scholarship recipient.

This scholarship was created in memory of Dr. William D. Revelli to help a high school senior each year that is performing at the Music for All National Festival study music education at the university level. Each recipient is chosen based upon his or her academic, musical, and community service accomplishments, as well as a personal essay written about music education, and a nomination from his or her band director.

“This was my third year at the Music for All National Festival, and it is an honor to receive this scholarship after witnessing several of my role models receive it in years past,” Ray said. “I look forward to the day when I can bring my own ensemble to the festival and give them the same positively life-changing experience that I’ve had.” 

Ray is a two-time Honor Band of America member who has performed in the National Concert Band Festival and the Chamber Music National Festival. She is the principal horn and section leader in her high school band.
