MM student Shawn Myers has been named the 2014-15 ASCAP Louis Armstrong Scholar.  The $3,000 award is made to a graduate student in Jazz Studies who demonstrates excellence in composition.  A California native, Shawn attended Interlochen Arts Academy and Oberlin College Conservatory of Music, and chose UNO for his graduate studies in jazz.  He focuses on original works, and took first place in UNO’s 2014 Ernest and Shirley Svensen Jazz Composition Competition. 

In December, Shawn will be honored at the ASCAP Foundation’s annual award ceremony at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. The scholarship is supported by the Louis Armstrong Educational Foundation, Inc.
