More alumni success stories: Lyle Hopkins awarded Fellowship at U of Oregon

I'm pleased to report yet more good news about our wonderful alumni.  Bassist and composer,  Lyle Hopkins graduated with his B.Mus. from Cap U last year. Since then Lyle has been very active as a performer on the Vancouver scene leading his own trio and working with Brad Muirhead Quartet, Vancouver Improvisers Orchestra, Music and Movement Mondays, Pillow Talk Trio, and other groups around town.

Lyle has been accepted to the Master of Music in Jazz Studies program at the University of Oregon and has been awarded a Graduate Teaching Fellowship.  The Fellowship provides a full tuition waiver and teaching assistant work at the University for the duration of his studies.  The School of Music at the University of Oregon  in Eugene, Oregon, is widely regarded as one of the foremost music schools in the Western USA.  I know Lyle will have a great time studying and teaching and working with my old mentor, Steve Owen, in the Jazz Studies Department.
