Activities are tailored to enrich music education and provide encouragement to those interested in vocal and instrumental music. The Music Enhancement Committee is comprised of Newaygo County music educators.
We provide an opportunity for eighth through 11th grade students to perform before a panel of guest adjudicators, and compete for monetary awards through our TrueNorth Music Scholarship Competition. Students compete as vocalists, pianists, or instrumentalists, and scholarships are used for private lessons, music camps, or instrument purchase or repair. See your choir, band or piano teacher for full details, including application; or contact Kim Tufnell at (231) 924-0641, ext. 135.
The Friday Piano Showcase provides piano students with opportunities to perform on the TrueNorth Steinway piano for family and friends in a recital setting. All participating students receive a certificate of achievement. The Friday Piano Showcases begin at 4 p.m. on select dates in the Multi-Purpose Room at the TrueNorth Service Center, 6308 S. Warner Avenue (M-82) in Fremont. See your piano teacher for details; or contact Kim Tufnell at (231) 924-0641, ext. 135.
Through our Piano Initiatives, we provide communities with opportunities to participate in different piano enrichment programs which vary from year to year, and include the Celebration Concert Series. The series celebrates the music of famous composers on (or near) their birthday. Local musicians perform at this free concert and typically, light refreshments are served. Past honorees have included Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schumann, Beethoven, and Duke Ellington. The concerts typically take place in November.
