“The Showcase is a great way to feature our faculty and our students and the amazing talent we have right here at West Texas A&M University,” Doug Storey, associate professor of music and member of the Showcase committee, said. “This is one of the most exciting concert programs of the year—we have a great time, and the audience does too.” The department presented its first Showcase of Music in 1980 to feature student talent and to help raise funds for student scholarships. Since then funds have been raised through advertising, ticket sales and donations and more than $500,000 has been added to the program’s scholarship fund. This year’s event will include the announcement of the recipients of the 2014-2015 Mercer scholarships. Lily Jack “Jackie” Mercer, who passed away in August 2012, left her entire estate to WTAMU to benefit scholarships in the Sybil B. Harrington College of Fine Arts and Humanities. During its 34-year history, Showcase has helped thousands of music students realize their dream of a college education with scholarships funded through the Showcase of Music, and Mercer’s gift is provide countless opportunities for many more students.
