Chloe Allen, daughter of Paulette Allen, David Macdonald and Michael Allen of San Francisco, and a senior at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., is the recipient of a scholarship from the Presser Foundation, awarded annually to an outstanding music student at Sarah Lawrence. The award was presented to Ms. Allen earlier this month.
A violinist, Allen studied at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. For the past three summers, she has taught theory and chamber music at the Sarah Lawrence Summer Music Festival. She teaches a number of elementary school children privately. Allen's other interests include modern and ancient languages, especially French and Classical Greek, dance, history, psychology, philosophy, and theater.
The Presser Foundation, based in Bryn Mawr, Pa., has offered its annual scholarships for more than four decades "to reward excellence and help the student not only financially, but also in his or her future career." Recipients' academic programs must include several courses outside the music field.
