2021 Scholarship Winner
We are proud to announce that our 2021 Anne E. Parker Memorial RCS scholarship winner of $1000 is Adam Pellegreen, who recently graduated from Riverbend High School. Adam was not only a stellar student in all of his academics throughout high school, but he also excelled in all of his music courses and performances. He plays the bass (his main instrument) having started as a child, but is an excellent trumpet player as well. He has been in orchestras and bands in school and in church. Throughout high school he has been in all county, district, regional and state orchestras and bands. Adam plans to major in both engineering and music at James Madison University and would like to play in a professional orchestra in the near future. Congratulation to Adam. The RCS wishes you the best in your future endeavors.
RCS Kept Singing
Although the pandemic forced the RCS to cancel its regular rehearsals and concerts, members of the group remained active. Two small groups of about 12 singers each met on alternate Mondays to rehearse some songs. Conductor Dr. Jordan Davidson and Accompanist Marilla Haas led the small groups who had their temperatures taken, wore masks and socially distanced within the large sanctuary of the Zoan Baptist Church. The church custodian sanitized the area both before and after rehearsals.
Our 2019 Scholarship Winner is Sarah Cuba, from Spotsylvania High School!
Sarah is a high school senior at Spotsylvania High School. She is a part of the Commonwealth Governor’s School, and plans to attend Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall to study Clarinet Performance. She is a part of her school’s Marching Band and Symphonic Band, and has played clarinet for eight years.
