The Albert G. Kyle Jr. Memorial Music Scholarship provides one year of private music lesson instruction & materials for students who demonstrate a committment, interest and aptitude in music. We are thrilled to be able to offer this scholarship now in its first year.
Al Kyle was a former parishioner and choir member
at Christ Episcopal Church, as well as a tireless supporter
of music within the life of the parish. Born in Brooklyn,
NY, on September 7th, 1943, Al was a US Navy veteran
and computer programmer for 50 years. We are very
pleased, with the generous support of his family, to announce this scholarship in
the month of his birth.
Please take a moment and get to know three outstanding individuals from the CCSArts family, who demonstrate aptitude, commitment and love of music. In particular, we would like to thank the families who have sacrificed, and struggled, while continuing to support their child in the Arts.
Christ Church School of the Arts is very proud to present, the recipients of the 2016 Al Kyle Music Scholarship.

My name is Karen Ha and I am one of the lucky winners of the Albert G. Kyle Memorial Scholarship. I feel so honored to be awarded the scholarship out of all of the other students.
