QUINCY — The Quincy University Music Department recently awarded high school students Ian Malaney and Margaret Wright a four-year, full-tuition Virtuoso music scholarship.

Malaney is from Quincy High School, plays the trumpet and plans to major in music education. Wright is from Effingham High School in Effingham, is a vocalist and flute player and plans to major in music education.

Students were selected through a competitive audition process. Recipients were chosen at the discretion of the music faculty based on ensemble needs and the talent level of the candidates.

“The QU music faculty was so impressed with the level of musicianship and academic background in each of the students that auditioned,” Christine Damm, dean of the school of fine arts and communication, said in a press release. “We are very excited to offer the Virtuoso music scholarship to these outstanding students whose hard work, dedication and talent have truly paid off. These students will lend their talents to many of the QU music ensembles and become a part of the QU music family.”
