Abigail Parrish ’20 (Nisbet Honors) placed 3rd in her section of College Freshmen Women, advancing her to the Sing-Off round of the competition. Caroline Bosworth ’18 won 1st place in the College Junior Women Musical Theatre category and performed at the Honors Recital. She also placed 2nd overall in the classical Junior Women category. Caroline is now eligible for the next round of the National Student Auditions.
