Federal Way Chorale to gift scholarship at Saturday performance

Rogers High School senior Charlie Stevens will recieve $2,000 towards his music degree.

The Federal Way Chorale announced Charles Stevens as the recipient of the 2019 Federal Way Chorale’s Don Barrows Memorial Scholarship.

Stevens will receive $2,000 toward his degree in music studies. He is a graduating senior at Rogers High School in Puyallup.

Stevens has pursued his interest in music through many avenues. He sings in both the award-winning concert and jazz choirs and he was recently asked to participate in the All-Northwest Vocal Jazz Ensemble as one of three baritones chosen from six states.

Stevens has performed in many school and local productions of musical theatre and in 2017 received a nomination for best actor in a leading role at the 5th Avenue Theatre Annual High School Awards.

His interest in music is not limited to vocal performance, as is evidenced by participation in concert and jazz band as a trombonist.

Stevens is currently a drum major for the Rams Marching Band. His wide-ranging musical interests support his subscription to his parent’s philosophy of incorporating all personal passions into daily life.

Becoming director of Jazz Studies at the college level is Stevens’ ultimate goal, with some time working as a jazz vocalist and voice actor before settling down to the academic life.

Please join the Federal Way Chorale in awarding this honor to Stevens by attending the scholarship presentation at the upcoming Federal Way Chorale concert, “Simple Songs With a Hat Tip (a tribute) to Leonard Bernstein.”

The performance will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18 at the Federal Way Performing Arts and Events Center. Tickets are available online at, by phone at 253-835-7010 or at the Patron Services Box Office.
