Classical MPR was pleased to welcome three Educational Sponsors to present a special scholarship offer to the Minnesota Varsity Featured Round Artists. Luther College, Concordia College and The College of St. Scholastica presented $4,000 for four years, to each Featured Round musician to attend their school. We're grateful for the commitment these institutions of higher education have made to our Minnesota Varsity musicians!
