Each year, the Forty Niners are pleased to award scholarships for vocal talent to three recent graduates of West Chester area high schools. For 40 years, the Chorus has selected a senior from each of the West Chester School District’s high schools, at the recommendation of the music department chair, who plans to pursue music as a college major.
This year's recipients are:
Christin Thomas is a 2013 graduate of Bayard Rustin High School. She is a dancer, singer and actor who has loved to perform since she was a small child. Through programs like West Chester Summer Stage, Chester County Voice Abroad, Rustin Choir and Rustin Theatre and COmmunity Musicals and Dramatic Productions, she has enjoyed a creative outlet in which to grow, share her joy and form lasting friendships. This fall, Christin will continue to nurture her love of music and theatre and sharpen her performance skills at West Chester University's College of Visual and Performing Arts.
Caroline Fresh is a 2013 graduate of West Chester East High School. She has been involved in the choral music program for four years at East and she has also been very active in East’s Theatre Company, having the lead roles in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” in 2012 and “Hairspray” in 2013. Caroline was chosen to represent East in the PMEA District 12 and Region 6 Choral Festivals and was recognized by the Greater West Chester Area Chamber of Commerce for her outstanding vocal abilities. She is attending Ithaca College to study vocal performance with a concentration in Opera.
Michael Tatasciore is a 2013 graduate of Henderson High School. In addition to performing as a tenor and baritone for the HHS Chorus program, Michael has participated in the school's musical program during his four years at Henderson, including leading roles in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Curtains. He is attending Marymount Manhattan College and is majoring in Theatre Arts with a focus in Musical Theatre.
