Harmony of the Gorge Music 
2017 Scholarship


We are very proud to announce that Emily Spezia-Schiff from Hood River Valley High School is the recipient of our 2017 scholarship.

In her application, Emily wrote, "Music is going to be a part of my life forever.  Playing music with an instrument is like an extension of myself, and it allows me to get lost in something else besides my own consciousness.....It (music) allows me to connect to other people and to the world in a way words can't."

We wish Emily the best!
