Student Pianists Honored in Hope Bach Competition

Posted April 30, 2003

HOLLAND -- Prizes were awarded to four piano students following the annual Bach Competition held at Hope College in conjunction with the conclusion of the spring semester.

The winners were: junior Sara Bolkema of Flushing; sophomore Carol Guess of Fort Wayne, Ind.; freshman Abigail Rockwood of Muskegon; and freshman Lisa Walters of Channahon, Ill.

The purpose of the annual competition is to stimulate interest in the keyboard music of J.S. Bach, and to foster the systematic study of his music from the Inventions to the Preludes and Fugues and other extended works. Underwritten each year by Dr. Anthony Kooiker, professor emeritus of music, the event has been held for 13 consecutive years.

The adjudicator was Roberta Kraft, adjunct associate professor of music at Hope.
