Annie Mullen Memorial  Scholarship

For beginner to intermediate level students


Annie Mullen, a longtime Boston, MA resident and native of the Connemara region in Ireland, enjoyed the traditional music and dance of her homeland.  She instilled this interest in her children through many trips to Ireland and incorporating those traditions into her family life.  Annie enthusiastically enjoyed listening to or dancing to this music.  After her passing in the summer of 2016, friends and family joined together to fund a scholarship in her memory.

  • This scholarship is available to beginner-intermediate level students enrolled in the CCE Boston Music School who look for the opportunity to further develop their skills in a program that complements what they are learning though our music school.
