The Dudley Birder Chorale of St. Norbert College has selected Logan Hash of Appleton East High School as this year’s winner of the Bush Scholarship Award for Vocal Excellence. Hash, as well as his choir teacher Dan Van Sickle, each will receive $1,000. Appleton East High School will receive an additional $500 for its music library. The scholarship is supported by the Robert & Carol Bush Vocal Music Fund at St. Norbert College.

The chorale received many letters of recommendation from area high school choir directors. Students auditioned by submitting videos showcasing their performance of a classical piece and/or a contemporary musical theatre selection. The audition videos were then viewed by a panel of judges of current or past music instructors from throughout the area.

“The level of talent and artistry throughout our schools continues to amaze and impress,” said Kent Paulsen, artistic director of the Dudley Birder Chorale. “We are beyond thankful for the continuing support of the arts and music education of the entire Bush family.”

The Bush Scholarship Award for Vocal Excellence has been awarded for the past 18 years. Started by Robert and Carol Bush in 2003 through an endowed gift through the Dudley Birder Chorale, the award continues to promote, encourage and support music in our schools by providing funds to outstanding students, vocal teachers and high school music programs.
