Philip H. Inman Excellence in Choral Conducting Arts Scholarship
Philip H. Inman was the Artistic Director of the Choral Society from 1979 – 2011
In establishing the Philip H. Inman Excellence in Choral Conducting Arts Scholarship, we, the members of the Beaver Valley Choral Society, have come together to celebrate Mr. Inman’s life-long dedication to excellence in the choral arts of Beaver County, Pennsylvania. We remember his perfection in training the many thousands of fortunate individuals who were and are inspired not only to produce beautiful sounds under his artistic encouragement, but to discover deeper human emotions of love for self, country, and especially God and the beauty of all creation through the joy of music.
It is fitting and right to honor Mr. Philip H. Inman by conferring this scholarship to an outstanding student focused on choral arts conducting. This scholarship is awarded annually to a student from one of our five partner universities, Duquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University, Westminster College, Geneva College, and Grove City College.
