Congratulations to all the talented young harp students who applied for this year's Valeria Finzi Memorial Scholarships, worked hard to prepare their music and performed for an esteemed panel of judges on Sunday, April 21, 2013, at Los Angeles' Colburn School of Music.

This year's judges were harpists Amy Wilkins and Celia Chan Valerio, and flutist April Chocholaty.

Recipients of this year's Finzi scholarships are:
Annette Lee
Rachel Klose
and Isabella Spring. 

In addition, Nina Agelvis was given the HILA award ("for the most musical performance") from Harp In LA (a gift certificate from Lyon & Healy West). 

Thanks to the judges for their time and consideration, and to AHS-LA 2nd VP and Education Chair Linda-Rose Hembreiker, who organized the auditions, with the expert help of AHS-LA board member Paul Baker.
