From the Top Alum Kara Sainz Wins Big

Kara on From the Top, January 2010

Last week we posted a great Arts Leadership project that was created and executed by alum Kara Sainz (soprano). We just got word that Kara has won a $10,000 award from the Young Musicians Foundation/ASCAP in Los Angeles! This Leiber & Stoller Scholarship is particularly special because it’s only awarded to one graduating high school senior from a huge pool of young musicians who auditioned and applied.

Kara will use this money to help pay for her next four years at Juilliard.

More information about the Young Musicians Foundation and the financial assistance/scholarships they offer can be found here.

Congrats to Kara on this great accomplishment, and good luck at Juilliard!
