Mississippi School of the Arts’ vocal music students recently participated in the 2018 National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) competition, as well as the 2018 Mississippi High School Activities Association State Choral Festival.

For NATS, senior Morgan Fruge received 1st place in High School Musical Theatre Women, senior Thomas Nelson received 2nd place in High School Musical Theatre Men, and junior Telvin Thomas received 3rd place in High School Musical Theatre Men.

At the State Choral Festival, the Mississippi School of the Arts Chorale received all Superior ratings in performance and sight-reading, resulting in a sweepstakes award at State Performance Assessment. Members of the MSA Chorale recently returned from New York City, performing Mozart’s Requiem at Carnegie Hall. The Chorale will perform alongside the Lincoln County Choral Society this spring.

Now we rise, we fly, we shine.
