Established in 1994, The Henry Mancini Musical Theatre Awards host high school students as they perform and receive awards for their school musical productions. Each year, 15 schools are accepted into the program designed to promote and celebrate the arts in high school students. All high schools in the Beaver, Butler and Lawrence County areas are invited to attend.
The 19th annual Henry Mancini Musical Theatre Awards will be held on the Geneva College campus at the Metheny Fieldhouse on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at 7 p.m.
The program is named after the beloved composer and West Aliquippa native, Henry Mancini. During his long career in the music industry, Henry was regarded as the most important film composer of his time and one of Pennsylvania's most successful musicians. He was nominated for an unprecedented 72 Grammy awards, and won 20. Nominated for18 Oscars, he won 4, as well as a Golden Globe and 8 gold records.
In May of 2010, Mrs. Henry Mancini (Ginny) was in attendance at the awards celebration. Son Chris Mancini and grandsons Chris and Luca Mancini have also represented the Henry Mancini family at the awards ceremony. The Mancini family members continue to be a source of encouragement from year to year of this program honoring their beloved father and husband.
Geneva College is committed to enhancing the arts in Western Pennsylvania and preserving the Mancini legacy that is part of our rich heritage. The McCarl Family Foundation, which is also committed to supporting the arts in our community, partners with Geneva College to help make the event possible.
$1,000 is awarded in scholarship to any student participant enrolling at Geneva College. A student participant includes anyone who has acted in the school musical, performed in the orchestra or was part of the stage crew/production team. The Muriel McCarl Scholarship is awarded to two students majoring in music. One award is presented to an enrolling Geneva College freshman and one to an enrolling freshman at any four-year college or university.
