The Carolyn White Memorial Scholarship is held annually in June for young flautists aged 15 years and under. Members of The Flute Society of South Australia Inc. are asked to consider ensuring the future financial viability of the Carolyn White Memorial Scholarship by making a donation to the Flute Society Scholarship Fund. All donations will assist our young flautists. Teachers and professional musicians or performers can claim their donation as a tax deduction.
The Flute Society’s Committee decided to establish a Scholarship Fund in 1985 for the eventual holding of an annual scholarship for young flautists. After three years of fundraising the first scholarship was held and awarded in 1989, with Geoffrey Collins as adjudicator. In late 1995 the annual scholarship was renamed Carolyn White Memorial Scholarship. In recognition of the 21st Anniversary a 3rd Prize was offered in 2006.
Carolyn White was born in 1960. She attended Vermont High School, where she took up the flute, learning from Murray Cooper. Carolyn went on to study at the Elder Conservatorium of Music, working with Zdenek Bruderhans. She graduated with an Honours Degree in Music in 1982. Carolyn played in a number of orchestras, including the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra, the South Australian Youth Orchestra and the Australian Youth Orchestra. She was a casual player with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. From 1985 to 1988, she served as President of the Flute Society of SA. In 1988 Carolyn was elected an Honorary Life Member. She died in September 1995.
