Joshua, Marcia, and Theodore Alper Scholarship Fund

Josh Alper Marines had an infectious laugh, warm and generous heart, and though incredibly humble was a musical visionary in his own right. Josh recognized talent in others and through music and performances reimagined mod and psychedelic folk music and fluxus art by bringing out the best creativity in his co-conspirators in the underground and indie music scenes in Santa Cruz and San Francisco. Above all Josh cherished his family and friends, had a great reverence for Santa Cruz and for those he called his fellow travellers, ordinary people who use their talents to live the dream by following their hearts.
