One of the special aspects of this day is to accept donations which will go into the scholarship fund of the Troy Music Study Club. Each year students from the Troy and Pike County public and private high schools may enter and audition for a scholarship.

This program is co-sponsored by the Troy Arts Council. The public is invited and encouraged to attend and to participate in the rich sound of the hymns of the church.
