Congratulations to this year’s Jeffrey Dean Memorial Award recipient Elizabeth Mountz. Belle Voci Board Chairperson Kenda Hammer made the announcement and presented the award at the Jeffrey Dean Memorial Recital, an annual performance that showcases the talents of music students at Fox Chapel Area High School.
This is the 11th year that the award has been presented to a Fox Chapel Area High School senior who exhibits leadership, both officially and by example, and demonstrates passion for musical performance during his/her high school years.
Belle Voci maintains the Jeffrey Dean Memorial Award, which was established in memory of the 1980 Fox Chapel Area High School graduate who found and brought joy to others through musical performance. A selection committee, made up of the Fox Chapel Area High School choral, orchestra, and band directors, along with a representative from the Belle Voci Jeffrey Dean Advisory Committee, chooses the award recipient.
