Annual High School Music Scholarship Competition
In December, we showcase our students at our annual Spotlight on Youth Program. The program includes high school students, college students, and often those who are performing professionally.
The participants look forward to seeing each other perform and the G.L.A.M., Inc. provides an honorarium to each participant, and the afternoon ends with a reception hosted by the branch.
Often the musicians perform in ensembles or accompany each other in their pieces, though many did not know one another when they first entered our program. Consequently, enduring friendships have developed and flourished for years.
Each February, during Black History Month, G.L.A.M., Inc.
produces a program that displays the talents of vocalists, choral groups, orators, dancers, and instrumentalists. This program always includes information about the Origin of Spirituals, and other important genres like Blues, Jazz, Latin Rhythms, and music forms that arose during the past 150 years and have roots in Africa and the black American experience.
