Cal Poly music major Corey Hable was the recent recipient of the annual $5,000 Barbara M. Jones Music Scholarship for the 2015-16 school year.
The scholarship was established in 2007 by Connie Jones Pillsbury in honor of her late mother, Barbara Jones, who was a musician and a great fan of Cal Poly music events.
Hable will premier his original composition, “O magnum mysterium,” at Cal Poly Choir’s “A Christmas Celebration” on Saturday at the Performing Arts Center.
