Claire Lemiski receives 2021 George Black Scholarship
Congratulations to Claire Lemiski, who has been named by The Hymn Society as a recipient of the George Black Membership Scholarship for 2021!
Each year, The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada awards scholarships to students attending a Canadian college, university, or seminary who show potential in the field of congregational song, through leadership as an accompanist, singer, conductor, worship planner or animator, or hymn text or tune writer.
The scholarship is named after George Black, who has been described as a consummate teacher who mentored clergy, lay readers, and musicians for his entire life. A former President of The Hymn Society, he chaired the Anglican Church’s Hymn Book Task Force which prepared Common Praise in 1998.
The Hymn Society brings together people with a passion for congregational song in all its aspects. The recipients of this Scholarship are introduced to the work of leading practitioners in this field of study, this area of ministry, as well as host of other valuable resources available through The Hymn Society.
There were 2 scholarships awarded for 2021.
We are proud of Claire for this achievement!
