Mozart Hammond Scholarships
HMLMF awards five to seven Mozart Hammond Music scholarships each year in December. Auditions are held in the Fall. The award provides funds for the talented recipient to receive additional music training in their chosen specialty.
Mozart Hammond, a well-respected musician, instructor and high-profile member of the Houston arts community, managed the Houston Conservatory of Music until his death in 1982. The school was founded in 1917 by his father Clarence who had named him Mozart because he was born the evening his father performed a Mozart concerto with the Chicago Symphony.
The Mozart Hammond Scholarship Fund continues the legacy of the two great Houston maestros Clarence & Mozart Hammond.
