Atinuke Sonuga, a 17-year-old flutist from Chicago, was the first-ever winner of the Berklee Lollapalooza Five-Week Scholarship. The award sent her to Boston to attend the music school’s summer performance program, which wrapped up yesterday. Sonuga said her experience in Boston and at the music school, where she had private lessons and put on multiple performances, was “priceless.’’ “There’s so much great talent here that it blows you away,’’ she said. “If I could, I would do [the program again] a million times over.’’ Going into her senior year in high school, Sonuga doesn’t plan on leaving Boston for long - Berklee is her top college choice.
