2017-18 Leonard and Joan Ronis Annual Memorial Recital Winners

Congratulations to our 2017-18 Leonard and Joan Ronis Annual Memorial Recital Winners!

William (Will) Spallino, trombone
Madeline (Maddy) Yankell, soprano

As co-winners of the prize, Will and Maddy will jointly perform the Ronis Memorial Recital in late October, 2017, and will be honored at the undergraduate awards ceremony in the spring of 2018.

The late Leonard Ronis established this performance prize in 1996 in memory of his wife, Joan Terr Ronis, an alumna of Western Reserve University. Students compete on any instrument in a closed audition during spring juries, with the faculty selecting the winner(s).
The prize is awarded to a junior or outstanding sophomore major in music who has made an
exceptional contribution to the musical life of the university.
