FARMINGTON – Lee Fellman has been named the third recipient of the Lively Arts Award. It is an annual $250 cash gift to a graduating Mt. Blue High School senior, recognizing enthusiasm, discipline and promise in music.

Fellman will attend the Berklee College of Music this fall to study percussion. A violinist, violist, singer and percussionist, he participated in many of the musical groups available to him in Farmington, including the Mt. Blue High School Orchestra, Chorus and Jazz Band, the Mt. Blue Voices and the Franklin County Fiddlers.

The award was presented on May 26 at the Mt. Blue High School awards ceremony.

Sister and brother Emma and Ben Lively created the award to give back to a community that supported them in their musical endeavors and to recognize talented young musicians and encourage them to continue to pursue their dreams.

Composer/arranger/violist Emma Lively (MBHS class of 1991) and jazz violinist Ben Lively (MBHS class of 1995) are professional musicians living and working in New York City.
