Dominican wins 2017 Berklee Prodigy Scholarship

Dominican electric bass guitar player Ernesto Núñez won the Miguel Bosé grant, presented by the Latin Grammy Cultural Foundation on 9 June 2017. The award is given to promising young musicians that could otherwise not afford to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The 22-year old electric bass player won a US$200,000 Prodigy Scholarship to cover his studies for four years starting this fall. He will study contemporary music writing production. He competed against Hispanic musicians from the Americas, Spain and Portugal.  Núñez plays with the BeCrazy band.

Miguel Bosé was present to grant the scholarship that carries his name. In addition, the school offers scholarships sponsored by Enrique Iglesias and Juan Luis Guerra scholarships. Guerra is a graduate of Berklee College of Music (1982).
