Juliana was a beautiful, brilliant and talented young woman of 19 who loved music and singing and life. This gift of scholarship is awarded to students interested in studying music or vocal performance.
Curtains Up Pagosa is honored to partner with the Ellsmore family to provide this gift to students in Pagosa. Anika Thomas is the first student recipient of Juliana’s Scholarship as she studies cello with her instructor, Jean Broderick.
