Immaculata University is pleased to announce that John Antosh ’21, of Collegeville, Pa., is the recipient of the 2020-2021 Presser Undergraduate Scholar Award.
Graduating from Perkiomen Valley High School, Antosh is pursuing a degree in Music with Performance Emphasis and a minor in Psychology. He will be given a $4,000 award to be used at his discretion for enrichment and musical advancement.
“The recipient of this prestigious award is chosen by our music faculty members on the basis of excellence and merit. John’s talent as a clarinet player makes him very deserving of this award,” said William Carr, DMA, Steinway Artist and chair of the Music department at Immaculata University.
As an active music student, Antosh has been a member of the Immaculata concert band and chorale and plays clarinet for the Immaculata Symphony. He has also been involved with Campus Ministry, Macs Respect Life, and the Music Therapy Club. He is a parishioner of St. Mary Roman Catholic Church in Schwenksville, PA.
The Presser Foundation was established in 1939 under the Deeds of Trust and Will of the late Theodore Presser. It is one of the few private foundations in the United States dedicated solely to music education and music philanthropy.
