CIM Alumnus Fitz Gary Receives Fulbright
August 14, 2013
Violist Fitz Gary (BM ’11) has received a Fulbright Scholar grant for music study of the two Brahms Viola Sonatas in Luebeck, Germany, with Barbara Westphal.
“I believe CIM has fully prepared me for this next chapter in my life,” Mr. Gary said. “Choosing CIM to study with Jeffrey Irvine was one of the best decisions I ever made. Looking back at how ‘complete’ my education was, top training is provided in so many facets of the music field so it becomes easy to find one’s own interests and at the same time, remain a rounded and whole musician.”
CIM was named a Top Fulbright Producer in 2011-2012. Previous CIM Fulbright recipients include:
- Julie Ann Link, bassoon (MM ’11)
- Louis Chiappetta, composition (BM ’11)
- Felix Ungar, viola (BM ’07, MM ’09)
- Danilla Strasfogel, violin (MM ’03)
- Lee Hancock, piano (MM ’04)
- Eliesha Nelson, viola (BM ’95)
Established in 1946, The Fulbright U.S. Student Program aims to increase mutual understanding between people of the United States and the people of more than 150 countries that currently participate in the Fulbright Program. Scholarships are awarded to U.S. graduating seniors, graduate students, young professionals and artists selected through a national, merit-based competition for study and research abroad.
Sponsored by the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, approximately 1,500 U.S. students and 3,000 foreign students receive Fulbright scholarships each year.
