Maurice Kawashima | Associate Concertmaster Chair

Endowed Merit Scholarship

Maurice Kawashima established this endowed scholarship to invest in his dual passions of classical music and aspiring talent. Maurice is a native of Japan who came to the United States as a student. He had a prolific career in the New York and Tokyo fashion industry before retiring to San Diego. This annual scholarship is awarded to a leading violin student in the San Diego Youth Symphony Orchestra for their participation in the orchestra and advanced chamber music. We extend our thanks to Maurice for his wonderful generosity.
