Morwenna Boyd, guitarist

The Ferris Burtis Music Foundation is happy to announce the latest young performer whom they are aiding in her education. Morwenna Boyd is a classical guitarist who is studying at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan.

She is studying with Michael Kudirka, a former student of William Kanengiser. While solo work is the core of the program, she is also taking part in an excellent guitar ensemble.

The Foundation has given her a grant to help with her tuition and plans to continue this help throughout her college years.

This year the Ferris Burtis has given $9000.00 to several young musicians for their study and for their careers.

Julian Müller is a 'cellist at Indiana University who is also a part of the Foundation. He is in his first year there.

Yevgeny Kutik is in the midst of a brilliant career. He makes his début at Alice Tully Hall on December 7th  playing the Mendelssohn Concerto with the Riverside Symphony. For tickets

The Elektra Ensemble is also having a busy season with concerts throughout the United States.

In June, all of these fine musicians will come together to present the Second Annual Ferris Burtis Music Foundation Concert to raise funds to continue the work of the Foundation. More will be announced closer to the date of the concert.

Gifts to the Foundation are appreciated. If you wish to help support these young artists, please send a check made out to Ferris Burtis Foundation, %Berkshire Taconic Foundation, 800 North Main Street, Sheffield, CT 01257.
