A freelance musician who holds the principal tuba position with the Pacific Symphony, Pasadena Symphony and Hollywood Bowl Orchestra and his wife have donated $100,000 in support of Indiana University of Pennsylvania to establish the school's Scholarship Brass Quintet Award.

Jim Self, a native of Vengano County and 1965 graduate of IUP, and his wife, Jamie, who live in Los Angeles, are offering the scholarships to five students who will form the school's Scholarship Brass Quintet, which will perform an annual recital and perform at selected university events.

In recognition of the gift, Room 116 in Cogswell Hall, home to the department of music, will be named the Jim '65 and Jamie Self Brass and Jazz Rehearsal Hall, school officials said. Self, who is principal tuba-cimbasso in the Los Angeles Opera Orchestra, has performed on scores for more than 1,500 motion pictures, television shows and records.
