Keith Barstow wins Peter Appleyard Scholarship

As a radio station and arts organization, JAZZ.FM91 supports educational initiatives and emerging artists in our community through a range of scholarships that support youth development and achievement. To that end, we are proud to announce the winner of this year’s JAZZ.FM91 Peter Appleyard Award.

This annual scholarship honours the legacy of vibraphonist Peter Appleyard and his incredible contribution to Canadian music by providing a scholarship for a current undergraduate jazz student.

The award is offered to outstanding undergraduate instrumentalists chosen from nominations submitted by administrators from the four Toronto area jazz programs (Humber College, Mohawk College, University of Toronto, York University). In tribute to Appleyard’s outstanding musical abilities and unparalleled character, the nominees are selected based on being a team player with a positive attitude and a passionate, hard worker who possesses a high level of potential.

Congratulations to Keith for being the recipient of this year’s award! And thank you to Peter Appleyard Jr and the JAZZ.FM91 community for supporting this important educational initiative!
