FLCCA Scolorship 2012

Each year Live On Stage, our booking agency, presents two $1,000.00 scholarships to deserving students studying music to encourage them to pursue their careers in the entertainment industry. This year FLCCA sponsored Lauryn Caruso of El Dorado Hills. Lauryn competed against other talented students from across the United States. How excited we are that Lauryn was chosen to receive one of these scholarships. Upon hearing the news of Lauren’s selection, the FLCCA board voted to match the Live On Stage scholarship. “What a wonderful surprise!” Lauryn told FLCCA. “I am honored to receive both the Live on Stage and the Folsom Lake Community Concert Association scholarships. It is really an honor. I am grateful for the financial help.” Lauryn began performing at age 11 with El Dorado Music Theater. Because of her wonderful talent she had the opportunity to perform in over 25 productions, many in the leading role. She has also performed with the Sacramento Theater Company, Runaway Stage, McCloud Summer Playhouse (her first paying performance) and Oklahoma City Repertory Playhouse. She currently studies music at the Wanda Bass Conservatory of Music at Oklahoma City University. This year she will be a senior and will put her scholarship money towards her studies. After graduation she intends to move to New York to continue her career. When her schedule allows, Lauryn has promised to perform at one of our concerts.
