Junior Awarded Indianapolis Matinee Musicale Scholarship

April 7, 2005

April 7, 2005, Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw University junior Sarah Fox has been awarded the Agnes H. Black Scholarship from the Indianapolis Matinee Musicale. A soprano and vocal performance major, Fox competed with ten undergraduate voice majors and a total of fifty-three musicians from six Indiana universities and colleges at auditions last month. A total of $15,300 was awarded to 19 winners.

Fox, a student of associate professor of music Caroline B. Smith, was also a winner of the DePauw Concerto Competition, the results of which can be heard Sunday at 3 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium. She has also had the roles of Cupid in Orpheus in the Underworld and Susanna in The Marriage of Figaro in operatic productions at DePauw. During the Fall 2004 semester, Fox studied abroad in Vienna.

“To be able to express my passion and to also get recognized for it is a true blessing,” says Fox of her most recent successes. “None this could have ever been achieved though without the support of my family, friends, and my wonderful voice teacher, Professor Smith.”
