PHOENIXVILLE (October 7, 2019) – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently recognized Maya Maloskey on being awarded the Rising Artist Vocal Scholarship from Concordia Choral Arts.

Maloskey, 13, of East Whiteland was named the winner of the contest at Rise up and Sing, Concordia’s second annual concert in honor of the International Day of Peace on Sunday at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Phoenixville. In winning the scholarship, Maloskey received a cash prize to further her vocal music training. At the concert, she performed a solo of “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”

“Arts, music and cultural education are important parts of the growth and development of our young people. Fortunately, Chester County and our region is home to no shortage of opportunities to take those skills and talents to the next level,” Dinniman said. “I want to congratulate Maya on her award and thank the members of Concordia Choral Arts for their ongoing contributions.”

A student at Great Valley Middle School, Maloskey has performed on various stages during her young career, including the Media Theatre, the Keswick Theatre, and several off-off-Broadway productions.

Last year, she was recognized for her performance in the lead role of the Media Theatre’s production of Snow White with the “Best Actress in a Children’s Musical Award” for the Philadelphia region from the BroadwayWorld Awards. For two years in a row, she was named one of the Media Theatre’s top five vocalists.

Concordia Choral Arts, a Chester County area non-profit choral arts organization, has been celebrating music-making and musical collaboration with performing arts groups in our area for more than a decade.
