The 2011 Revelli Scholarship was awarded to Caroline White from Atholton High School in Maryland at the Music for All National Festival. The scholarship is awarded in memory of Dr. William D. Revelli, one of America’s foremost band conductors and the icon for whom the Revelli Foundation was created and named in 1994. The Revelli Scholarship honors Dr. Revelli’s vision for music education.
“I sincerely love music in all of its forms and want to teach others to love it as well, because it has positively influenced my life and will undoubtedly do the same for future generations,” said White.
