Jenkins, a graduate of Woodland High School who resides in Stockbridge, Ga., will receive a $1,000 scholarship and the Freddy Cole Trophy, in honor of Bob Geer. Since 1980, non-profit Atlanta Steinway Society has been advocating young music enthusiasts to further their higher education through scholarships and to bring music events to the community.
Jenkins will perform piano music by Bach, Mozart and Debussy at the Atlanta Steinway Society’s winners’ recital concert on Sunday, Sept. 21 at 4 p.m. The event, free of charge, will be held at the Kellett Chapel of Peachtree Presbyterian Church, 3434 Roswell Rd., Atlanta, followed by a reception.
