AVAILABLE FULL SCHOLARSHIPS
FRANCES FOX SCHOLARSHIP
Available to Female applicants
Born in Oklahoma City Oklahoma, Mrs. Fox studied in high school with Reginald Fink while he was the trombone professor at Oklahoma City University from 1957-1962. While still in high school, Mrs. Fox spent a summer at The Interlochen Arts Academy which is where she first got on Emory Remington's radar as a potential student. Remington recognized Mrs. Fox’s talent early on and wanted her in his Eastman class of 1961. Though her acceptance was questioned by the legendary band conductor, Frederick Fennell, Remington vouched for her talent, abilities and work ethic. Mrs. Fox not only became the first female trombonist student to graduate from this famed institution in 1961, but did so with honors. After graduation, she won a job as second trombone with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra. She spent two seasons there before moving to Michigan with her husband who had gained other employment opportunities up north. As a talented trombonist, she was able to continue her performance career as a freelancer playing in musicals, church gigs and teaching private music lessons. Her daughter accounted that there was always music playing in the house on the radio growing up and there was a revolving door of many young trombonists coming for lessons. She later moved to Maryland where she taught in the Montgomery County School District for over 30 years primarily as Director of Bands at Parkland Middle School. While living in the DC area, she was also a member of the Virginia Grand Military Band from it’s conception in 1993 until her retirement in the mid 2000’s . She kept a vibrant freelance career while teaching a robust private studio that excelled in the regional and state band auditions.
