Music director sponsors scholarships NORTH COUNTY -- Linthicum * Ferndale * Brooklyn Park * Pumphrey


December 07, 1992|By ROSALIE M. FALTER

Charles Haslup and the Notables have been making sweet music together for some time now.

Members of the Notables, the entertainment unit of Patapsco Valley Chapter 3850 of the American Association of Retired Persons, decided to thank their director and accompanist recently with a gift of money.

Mr. Haslup, a retired music teacher from Towson State University, has turned his present into music scholarships.

Dr. Janice Macauley, chairwoman of the Anne Arundel Community College music department, was enlisted to help set up auditions for students vying for scholarship money.

Four students who are studying music at the college were selected for the Haslup scholarships, each worth $50.

Presentations took place Nov. 24, after a rehearsal of the Notables at St. Christopher Church Hall.

Two of the four scholarships were memorial awards.

The first was in memory of Mary Del Linthicum, a longtime resident of North County and an accomplished violinist. This scholarship was given to Barbara Balkoski of Crofton.

The second award was in memory of former members of the Notables -- Fran Lang, Magdalene Prince, Kathryn Warfield -- and in memory of loved ones of the families of present group members. The scholarship went to Daniel Cope of Arnold.

The third scholarship was given to Mayra Wright of Arnold and the fourth went to Anthony Barrett of Pasadena.

Each student award winner will appear as a guest artist with the Notables at a future performance.


Thirteen-year-old Sarah Augustowski, an eighth-grader at St. Philip Neri School, just returned from Honolulu where she competed in the first World Championship of Hula. She was the youngest of six women from Maryland chosen to compete. Although Sarah didn't win, she "had a lot of fun."

Sarah has been attending Halau Pulama Mau Ke Aloha Ka Ohana Ilima hula school in Pasadena for the past 3 1/2 years, taking classes in Hawaiian dance, culture, history and language.

Sarah's love for the hula began when she was 6 during her first trip to Hawaii.

She has been dancing professionally since she was 10.

Sarah has been attending classes at the Halau three to four times a week and performs in shows all over Maryland, Virginia and Pennsylvania.

She also began Japanese language classes in June. Her goal is to become a Kuma Hula (hula teacher) and dance at the Polynesian Cultural Center in Hawaii while studying business management at the University of Hawaii.
