Carrie Brown, a junior piano performance major at Ouachita Baptist University, won first place at the Hot Springs Music Club Scholarship Auditions in Hot Springs, Ark., May 2.
Brown, from Knoxville, Ark., is a piano student of OBU professor of music Dr. Ouida Keck. Brown, who has been playing the piano since she was four years old, is also the recent winner of the Arkansas Federation of Music Clubs (AFMC) Audrey Caviness scholarship and the state winner in piano of the National Federation of Music Clubs (NFMC) Biennial Student/Collegiate Auditions.
“Carrie is a very talented pianist with a great deal of musicality,” Keck has said.
As the winner of the Hot Springs Auditions, Brown received a $1200 scholarship which will be applied toward her tuition expenses at OBU next fall.
