The Sam Pitcher Memorial Scholarship
By Judith Green

The concert tonight at the Kayhi auditorium was AGAIN another
rousing good evening of spirited enthusiastic musical talent
from our young people.
Each one of these young people was enjoying their part in this
evening of jazz and blues. The conductors, Dale Curtis and Roy
McPherson inspire and encourage a 'give it all you've got' attitude,
which is so evident as we listen piece after piece: "it
keeps getting better" we say after each. "We"
don't even notice the time that has lapsed. Why? Because the
students are so enjoying their time of performing with each other;
and giving their all.
There is talent in all sections brought out by both Dale and
Roy. Almost every piece featured soloists-or was it every piece?
Two pieces featured an outstanding Kayhi student vocalist. Poised
and confident. Comfortable with the microphone. Clearly sang
the words. Each note was clear, not forced.
What a wonderful tribute to the memory of Sam Pitcher.
This town is so fortunate to have inspiring 'role' models.
Thank you to these young people for their time, practice, and
