Congratulations to the scholarship winner!! 2016 12 15
2016 On December 15th, the Justina Gringytė Charity and Relief Foundation selected its first scholarship winner.
The scholarship was established for the students of Alytus Music School. Eleven contestants were selected by the heads of the music school departments and the twelfth was chosen by secret ballot. The jury consisted of Lina Poškienė (piano), Valentinas Kaplūnas (cello), Marius Balčytis (trombone) and Justina Gringytė (opera soloist, founder of the foundation). All twelve young contestants were very well prepared and presented high artistic numbers. The winner of the competition was unanimously chosen Toma Mensevičiūtė, a pupil of 5th grade martyr specialty. She was impressed by her excellent technique, musicality and stage expression. The jury awarded 11-year-old violinist Žilvinas Grigonis with a special prize. This prize is the annual fee for studying at the Alytus Music School. It's a good idea to have one. Congratulations to the winners!
