Western Carolina Civic Orchestra Student Awards

WCU students Ashton Parker and Tyronne Kiaku were co- winners of the 2017 Western Carolina Civic Orchestra Concerto Competition. Both are juniors in the WCU School of Music.
Their cash award was presented by Gayle Woody, President of the Jackson County Arts Council.
“It was fitting to present these awards to these two talented young people on the day we are honoring Mr. William Henigbaum’s 96th birthday. Just as he inspired so many with his musical leadership, these young musicians are the future to ensure his legacy lives on.” said Woody during the presentation. The Jackson County Arts Council sponsored the awards and held a reception to honor Mr. Henigbaum following the Western Carolina Civic Orchestra’s Concert.
