I’ll be the first to admit that when I hear the term ‘classical’ music, visions of Beethoven pop into my head. I think of taking a nap in the theater while the orchestra squeaks out a long, instrumental piece or tapping my foot in the elevator while waiting to get out on a higher floor. I would never think to include George Gershwin or Duke Ellington in that category, but they are both considered to be among America’s best classical composers. To this day, Porgy and Bess is one of my favorite musicals, and I still can’t listen to “It Don’t Mean a Thing if It Ain’t Got That Swing” without snapping my fingers or swinging my hips. Who would have guessed that I actually like classical American music? Now, I’m not saying it’s downloaded on my iPod, but I can at least appreciate the contributions that Leonard Bernstein and others have made to music. Why am I telling you this? Well, September happens to be Classical Music Month, so I thought it might be fun to ‘orchestrate’ a short list of scholarships that can help you ‘drum up’ some free money for college.
