April 5, 2021 (El Cajon) – For the past 64 years, the Music Scholarship Council based in El Cajon has enriched our community with classical music. The nonprofit 501c3 group has provided over $400,000 in scholarships for aspiring young musicians ages 16-24 across San Diego County to further their musical ambitions, including instrumentalists and vocalists. But now, that mission is in peril.
