Salmon Arm musician first to receive Clara Anderson Endowment funding

Recipient Holly McCallum is an accomplished cellist and pianist

A community scholarship created to support musicians with financial need has its first recipient.

In October 2012, Clara Anderson started an endowment fund with the Shuswap Community Foundation for a music scholarship, to be awarded annually to anyone in need of funding to further their music career.

The scholarship was recently awarded to Holly McCallum.

McCallum is an accomplished cellist and pianist, and she will be featured in concerts around the North Okanagan this coming Christmas season.

Anderson was a member of the Shuswap Singers for 50 years, and is currently a member of the Northern Lights Chamber Choir.

“It is my hope that when the fund matures, it will help musically talented people who need financial assistance; something I certainly could have used in those early years,” Anderson said regarding the endowment fund on the Shuswap Community Foundation website.

The fund is open to contributions from anyone who wishes to contribute.
