2015 Organ Student Scholarship Competition results
On Saturday, April 11, the annual organ Student Scholarship competition took place at Mount Olive Lutheran Church (3045 Chicago Ave S, Minneapolis). Competitors played on the Schlicker organ during this exciting day of music. A new addition to the competition this year added an element of audience participation: competitors are required to play all stanzas from a chosen hymn and the audience was invited to sing along.

The first place prize went to David H. Anderson of St. Olaf College, a student of Dr. Cathy Rodland and Dr. Lynn Trapp. The award is given by Schubert Club as part of the Bruce P. Carlson Student Scholarship Competition. Anderson will go on to compete at the regional competition in St. Louis in June. The second place prize is $1,000 and is generously donated by Twin Cities American Guild of Organists member Phil Asgian.
