2022 Scholarship Winner
We are proud to announce that our 2022 Anne E. Parker Memorial RCS scholarship winner of $1000 is Sabrina Van, a Massaponax High School graduate who will attend Princeton University this fall. The scholarship is given in memory of Anne E. Parker, a founding member of the Rappahannock Choral Society, to a Spotsylvania County high school graduating senior with plans to pursue an education in the field of music. Van, a violinist, is an exemplary student and has participated in regional, state and semi-professional orchestras. She also enjoys playing piano for the residents of Bickford Senior Center, where she delights in conversing with residents about their musical backgrounds and their past experiences.
“Not only do I wish to continue making music, I want to show others the deep emotion of music that bonds us all through teaching and performance,” said Van. She plans to continue participating in orchestras and become a part-time music teacher.
The RCS wishes you the best in your future endeavors.
