The Loveland Stage Company has awarded its 2022 Scholarship Winner!
Alton French, a 2022 Loveland High School graduate, is the recipient of this year’s $1000 Loveland Stage Company Creative Arts Scholarship.
Alton will be attending the Cleveland Institute of Music in the fall where he will be pursuing a Bassoon Performance Major. While bassoon is one of the later instruments that Alton has learned to play, it is the one that has caught his fancy. His bassoon instructor’s recommendation spoke about the speed with which he progressed on the instrument and that he even makes his own reeds, showing a concern for the technical aspects of the bassoon and not just the music.
During high school, Alton played in Loveland High School’s Marching Band, Wind Ensemble, and Jazz Band. For those he played various instruments – flute, piccolo, saxophones, and bassoon. For at least one of his high school years and generally multiple years, he has played bassoon for the Ohio District 14 Honor Band, the Cincinnati Symphony Youth Orchestra Philharmonic, and his favorite, the OMEA All-State Orchestra.
Alton also plays piano and took that role on in the pit orchestras for both Loveland High School and Loveland Stage Company’s productions of The Drowsy Chaperone when he was a freshman.
We wish Alton the best as he pursues his “second language” and support his passion for music.
