Cascade School of Music is proud to announce Haley Jo Shaw, a vocal student of Cullie Treichler, as the Fortissimo Award winner for March..
The Fortissimo Award recognizes students in year three and above of private instruction who exhibit talent, effort and achievement. These are Cascade School of Music’s best students. The students who receive this award have been nominated by their teachers as showing both great promise as musicians along with great perseverance and commitment to their craft.
Cullie Treichler states, “Haley Jo Shaw is a remarkable young woman. She is unassuming with her natural singing talent and a joy to work with. She is dedicated to developing her gift into skillful artistry and yet maintains a light heart in her studies. She is an exquisite human being and her intrinsic beauty is conveyed in her stage presence and singing voice. It is truly an honor to work with her and witness her development of vocal freedom and poise..”
Along with an award certificate, Haley received a $100 scholarship toward her private lessons, and a gift from award sponsor Cuppa Yo and Cascade Indoor Sports. Haley and subsequent monthly Fortissimo Award winners will compete head to head for a $1000 scholarship to continue their music studies at Cascade School of Music during Crescendo Bendo to be held at the Tower Theatre on June 2, 2018.
