TMYO announced the Beth Waligorski Scholarship Award at the December 16, 2017 Winter Concert. The scholarship will be awarded annually to two graduating TMYO musicians – the TMYO conducting staff will choose the recipients each year, and they will be announced at the TMYO Spring Concerts.

The award was named in honor of the Tampa Metropolitan Youth Orchestra Treasurer, Beth Waligorski – accomplished musician and dedicated volunteer who brings out the best in everyone — a lifelong ambassador of classical music.


Awarded to two senior musicians in honor of “Excellence Beyond Measure” in music performance, and Commitment to Lifelong Engagement in Classical Music.
