James and Helen Pellerite Flute Scholarship

(est. 2006) James Pellerite, born in 1926, enjoyed many years of professional orchestral experience. The establishment of this scholarship is intended to encourage flute students to become immersed in the orchestral literature of flute.

Each year, the Jacobs School of Music flute faculty holds an audition that mimics professional orchestra auditions to select a recipient for the Pellerite Flute Scholarship.
