Reprise Music Scholarship Fund

This is a charitable trust dedicated to the advancement of Dawson music and music education. In honour of musicians Gord Polichek and Wendy Perry, this fund is accessible to emerging Dawson musicians and music educators for the purposes of advancing a student(s) musical training. This fund can be accessed to supplement workshop, course and lesson fees, augment costs related to competitions, examinations and as a fund accessible for music educators to purchase sheet music and books.

Note: though this fund is administered through the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture, it is a community fund accessible to all students of music, regardless of where or from whom they receive instruction.
