Cal State Fullerton master of music major Jason Pano is this year’s recipient of the Elliot and Kathleen Alexander Memorial Scholarship by professional chorus Pacific Chorale. The annual scholarship is awarded to an outstanding choral conducting student from the University.
Pano is a second-year graduate student in choral conducting, where he is a student of Robert Istad. “Jason is an incredibly promising young conductor,” says Istad, professor of music and director of choral studies. “He is musically astute, philosophically insightful and a humorous, engaging teacher. I am very proud of his work at CSUF, and I know that he will achieve a conducting career of significance.”
