A Love of Music and a Legacy Carried On

Carolyn Greenleaf knew that music was magic, that music captured our hearts and fed our souls. Her friends felt that she was magical and unique, and when she passed away in 2008, they established the Carolyn Greenleaf Memorial Fund to honor her dedication to music education and to young people.

An award is given each semester to a high school junior or senior who demonstrates exceptional musical ability and motivation, and the award provides a semester of private lessons at the Community Music School in Centerbrook. The selection committee is pleased to announce that violinist Jenna Wilson is the recipient of the Spring 2013 Carolyn Greenleaf Music Award.
