Historical Scholarships
    The Bridgehampton Historical Society has introduced a scholarship program for high school seniors who live in the greater Bridgehampton area, including Sagaponack and Hayground. The historical society’s mission is to inspire the documentation, preservation, and interpretation of the history, oral history, and cultural traditions of Bridgehampton and its surrounding communities.
    In line with this mission, the society has invited students to submit oral history essays by March 15. Each essay must be an account of a local occurrence, must be between 1,000 and 1,500 words, and must be a recollection by someone from the Bridgehampton area pertaining to that place. Finalists will be selected by April 30, and the winner will receive a check for $1,000.
    Those with a historical bent can find out more by visiting or by calling the society.

On the Music of Film
    The Ross School will present an evening with Carter Burwell, a composer of film scores, tomorrow at 7 in the Senior Building Lecture Hall on Goodfriend Drive in East Hampton. Mr. Burwell, a parent of two Ross students, will speak about his work, including what it is like to work on big-budget Hollywood movies, how he got started, and his creative process. A question-and-answer session will follow.
    Those who attend will also be treated to a 7:30 p.m. screening of “Twilight,” for which Mr. Burwell supplied the evocative score. The event is free and open to the public. Along with almost every film made by the Coen brothers, Mr. Burwell also scored “The Kids Are All Right.”
