The Stanley Clarke Band will perform, and the celebrity judges will be in the house as FIVE of MI’s most talented students will take the stage to perform two songs each for the prestigious Stanley Clarke Scholarship Finals Concert at the MI Concert Hall on Sunday Nov. 23rd at 8pm. This annual event is co-sponsored by The Stanley Clarke Scholarship Foundation and Musicians Institute and managed by The Musicians Foundation.
Stanley Clarke, (and his band featuring Ruslan Sirota, Ronald Bruner Jr., and Paul Jackson Jr.) will perform and a panel of well known music industry judges (Doug Webb, Sunnie Paxson, Kennard Ramsey, and more to be announced) will choose TWO finalist winners who will each receive a scholarship prize package of $9,000 from Stanley and MI, on the basis of musical talent, performing ability, stage presence, musicianship and charisma during the Final Performance Event. Three runners-up will receive a scholarship (tuition discount) award of $2,000 each.
Bassist, composer, producer Clarke, whose prodigious talent, 40+ albums and 60 film scores, multiple Grammys, Emmys, critics’ and readers’ polls, and gold and platinum records have made him one of the most recognized and respected names in the annals of contemporary music, has selflessly and generously created opportunities for talented, emerging musicians to further their education and realize their own creative vision.
For more than a decade, the Stanley Clarke Scholarship at Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music has provided substantial financial assistance to outstanding student performers since its inception and creation by Stanley in 2002. In recognition of his exemplary and extraordinary support of music education, Stanley was awarded the first-ever honorary Doctor of Music degree from Musicians Institute in 2009.
