The memorial scholarship was established in 1979 by Virginia Fletcher Hawk, in memory of her daughter Susan, and has been awarded annually to outstanding vocalists. Sądej will select two pieces from her extensive repertoire to perform during the Awards Concert on April 10. In the past, she has appeared onstage performing a number of world premieres and special compositions, singing in concerts, operas, oratorios and chamber recitals.
