Local Youths Compete for Lions Music Scholarship

Posted on March 10, 2016

Local area Lions Clubs sponsored contestants in a March 9th competition to award prize money and select vocalists and instrumentalists to advance to state level competition.  This is the Virginia Lions “James A. Bland Music Scholarship Competition.”  The Fairfax Lions Club had held a competition in January and selected 2 contestants for scholarship awards from our club and to advance to last night’s event.

For information on the Bland Contest, see:  Lions of Virginia Bland Music Scholarship Foundation

The March 9th event was wonderful competition:  13 instrumental and vocalist competitors performed beautifully.  The quality of the competition was high, and a panel of judges worked hard to select winners.

The Fairfax Lions Club sponsored performing artists are in the photo below.  They were not selected to advance, they were superb.  We thank them for doing their best, and thank Lion Jeff Root for chairing our Bland contest activity.
