Music major Jordan Curcuruto (’14) has recently been awarded a scholarship to attend the Percussive Arts Society International Convention, taking place this November in Texas.  The Percussive Arts Society awards only one scholarship for undergraduates in the state of California.  This award is among the highest and most prestigious that has gone to a member of the percussion program at Chapman.  Jordan’s picture and biography will soon be published in the national newsletter,
Percussive Notes
, which reaches over 7000 members of PAS throughout the US, Europe, and Asia.  These members include leading percussion pedagogues, students, and professional players.  While at the international convention, she will be acknowledged at a major gala event in front of the highest level of PAS administration and supporters.  This is to say nothing of what the Convention will provide in in the way of networking, increased knowledge, and a renewed sense of enthusiasm for her music.   Congratulations, Jordan!
