About the George & Beverly August Piano Scholarship

The George & Beverly August Piano Scholarship was established in 2014 to assist in the careers of promising undergraduate pianists studying at California State University, Long Beach. This prestigious scholarship is awarded annually on the basis of demonstrated talent and excellence through an open competition.

The award is made possible through a generous endowment by George and Beverly August, longtime supporters of the arts. The impact of their untiring presence at Bob Cole Conservatory piano events can be felt to this day. (When the late George was no longer able to attend at the age of 92, Beverly continued to grace her front row seat of the recital hall.)

A music-lover, George August was especially fond of Romantic piano music. In his honor and memory, today’s contestants will each perform a work in the Romantic style on the piano.
