Gordon Avery Scholarship
ProAm Workshop


Summertrios is proud to offer the Gordon Avery Scholarship in memory of Summertrios past president and longtime ProAm participant Gordon Avery. The scholarship will be used to support young performers who demonstrate great promise in chamber music performance and need financial assistance to continue advancing to the next level. The scholarship will support up to three (3) musicians as participants in Summertrios ProAm Workshop held annually in June at Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.


About ProAm Workshop

The ProAm week offers participants the opportunity to play chamber music side-by-side with world-class faculty. Players choose two works to rehearse and perform with the gifted and caring performer/coaches culminating in several concerts at the end of the workshop.
