The BCCS 2013 Scholarship Auditions were held on Tuesday May 7 at the Second Congregational Church in Bennington.
Eight students competed this year for two $400 scholarships to help defray the cost of music lessons: six vocal performers, one tuba player, and one tympanist. Thanks to all eight competitors – they were all excellent candidates!
