Along with Riordan's prize, his vocal music teacher, Teresa Schmidt, will also receive $500.00, and Notre Dame Academy will be presented $300.00 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, April 15 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 Dudley Birder, and St. Norbert faculty members Kent Paulsen, Linda Feldmann, and Yi-Lan Niu.
