Scholarship Spotlight

Aria Beert

2021 Gary S. Wilmer / RAMI Music Scholarship

In school, I am a member of my orchestra, and I was a member of our Honors Orchestra, which was a more select group that performed in churches before the pandemic. I am also involved in the multiple activities/concerts that the Music Academy in Rockford plans out every year. I am in their most advanced orchestra called Measure 5, which performs difficult string pieces and usually performs out of state or out of the country every two years. We have performed in Arizona, Texas, Alaska, Iceland, and were invited to play in Scotland last summer. Members of Measure 5 and I have performed with the Rock Valley Summer Pops Orchestra at Sinnissippi Park, where we performed movements of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Read more.
