Along with Masias's prize, her vocal music teacher, Brandon Rockstroh, will also receive $500, and Green Bay's Southwest High School will be presented $300 for its choral library.
Robert and Carol Bush established the endowed program in 2003 for the Dudley Birder Chorale. The program's aim is to promote vocal music within high schools, choosing from those communities represented by membership within the Chorale. These communities include high schools from the counties of Brown, Outagamie, Kewaunee, Shawano, Door, Manitowoc and Oconto.
Auditions were held on Sunday, May 1 at St. Norbert College. Students were recommended to audition by their teachers as an outstanding junior or senior vocal student in their school. The judges were Michael Barber, Dudley Birder, and St. Norbert faculty members Kent Paulsen, adjunct instructor of music, and Linda Feldmann, adjunct instructor of music.
