Richard J. Schilling Collaborative Piano Scholarship in Honor of Charles H. Webb
The Richard J. Schilling Collaborative Piano Scholarship in Honor of Charles H. Webb was established by Richard J. Schilling, a friend to Charles Webb.
Charles H. Webb, an American pianist, organist, conductor, and music educator, was educated at Southern Methodist University (A.B. and M.M. '55) and Indiana Unviersity (D.M. '64). He joined the faculty of Indiana University as a piano instructor in 1958. From pianist and concert organist to choral and instrumental conductor to composer and administrator, Dr. Webb has received acclaim in virtually every area of music. For 24 years, Dr. Webb served as Dean of Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
Known and respected internationally, Dr. Webb was awarded the 1997 Rockefeller Fellowship to Bellagio, Italy for the study of hymns of all faiths; the 1989 Indiana Governor's Award for the Arts; the 1987 Thomas Hart Benton Medal for Indiana University; the 1980 Distinguished Alumni Award from Southern Methodist University; and the Sagamore of the Wabash Awards from three Indiana Governors.
