This is from Chris Whyte, the director of the Portland Summer Percussion Academy, which is held each summer at Lewis and Clark University.
All percussion students participating in either State Solo, State Small Ensemble, or Wind Ensemble (qualified for state) will be offered a $100 scholarship to the camp for students who have qualified for the state contest.
