Eight UW-Eau Claire Students 
Receive Cabaret Scholarships 

MAILED: April 15, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  Eight University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students received scholarships at the university's 24th annual Cabaret, themed "The British Invasion." Students were chosen for the $400 scholarship on the basis of their contributions to the choral ensembles and the annual Cabaret. To apply for the scholarships, students wrote short essays describing how their participation in the choral programs had contributed to their undergraduate experience at UW-Eau Claire.
         Cabaret scholarships were awarded to seniors Janine Brinkman, New Hope, Minn., a choral music education major; Shanin Buhr, Amery, a music major; Sarah Daly, Whitefish Bay, a choral music education major; Andrew Johnson, Eau Claire, a management information systems major; Andrew Nelson, Eagan, Minn., a computer science major and music minor; Jennifer Weber, Menomonie, a choral music education major; Anne Marie Weisensel, Green Bay, a music major and theatre minor; and Samuel Wulterkens, Stanley, a choral music education major.
         Brinkman was a student director for Concert Choir I and also was selected for the $200 Cabaret Directors Award scholarship chosen by the cabaret student performers. Wulterkens was also a student director for Concert Choir I.
         Cabaret is a 10-month project with an operating budget of $18,000 and has raised more than $165,000 raised for music student scholarships. The scholarships were handed out at Cabaret opening night, Jan. 17, in the Council Fire Room, Davies Center.
