The Baldwin Pops is proud to annually host 2 scholarship concerts, where outstanding high school band students, nominated by their band directors, join the Baldwin Pops for rehearsals and performances. Three students are awarded scholarships to pursue musical studies at the collegiate level. John Allen was a Baldwin Pops member whose spirit expemplified life long learning, having starting to play Tuba at age 72. After having the opportunity to learn with the beginners at Fairhope Middle School Band, he joined the Baldwin Pops. We honor him with these scholarship concerts each Spring because he followed the Pops mission statement that, music education, playing and performing an instrument allows you to enjoy music your entire life. If you have a high school student interested in qualifying for one of our scholarships, please contact us regarding our rehearsal schedule, which begins Tuesday, March 13, 2018.
