Nicolas Fortin Scholarship

The Nicolas Fortin Scholarship was established in the Fall of 2016 to keep the spirit of co-founding co-Artistic Director Nicolas Fortin alive and well for years to come. Each year Bourbon Baroque will contribute funds toward a rising Baroque specialist covering tuition or other variable costs for a one-week Summer workshop study in the Baroque Performance Practice field. Nicolas was a consummate educator at heart; therefore, it is only fitting to honor him in a way that promotes the urgency and passion that the music of the Baroque instilled in him and he in us. There is no age requirement or limitation for this scholarship.
