Bianca Thurgood Selected for National Honors
Congratulations to rising senior Bianca Thurgood, who participated in Virginia All State Choir last April. Only rising seniors were permitted to audition at the national level. Bianca made it. This is a HUGE accomplishment for one our very own students! Very few members were selected from Virginia and the talent was rich with outstanding sopranos. To make it in as a soprano magnifies the accomplishment. Bianca has accepted the invitation to be in this choir and will be singing in the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on October 29th!
