NCS Announces 2020 Betty Gillette Scholarship Recipient!

The Newburyport Choral Society is proud to award the 2020 Betty Gillette Scholarship to Delia Zaleski of Amesbury.

Ms. Zaleski grew up in Newburyport and attended Newburyport Public Schools until she transferred to the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan for her final two years of high school. An accomplished flutist, she has performed in an orchestral, chamber, and theatrical ensembles, including performing a world premiere with renowned flutist, Sir James Galway. 

Locally, Delia performed with the Northeast Massachusetts Youth Orchestras, including their flute choirs under the direction of Trisha Craig. A strong student as well as an outstanding musician, she plans to attend Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, majoring in flute performance. 

The $1000 scholarship honors Betty Gillette, a longtime NCS member, and is awarded to a graduating high school senior who plans to major in music. 

Congratulations, Delia!
