MCC Grat L. Rosazza Scholarship

Marion Civic Chorale

Savannah Hirst, a senior at West Port High School's MECCA (Marion County Center for the Arts) program in choral and theater arts, is Marion Civic Chorale's 2014 scholarship recipient. Savannah says the "secret joys of music" were not revealed to her until late in middle school when she joined a school band to be with friends. In her high school experiences, she developed leadership and team work as well as developing admirable abilities in music and theater arts as evidenced by many district and state superior awards for her solo, duet, small group and conducting performances. Recently she performed Cunegold's aria "Glitter and Be Gay" from Candide before 7,000 people at the Florida State Thespian Festival.
Savannah will attend Florida State University, planning ultimately to attain a doctoral degree in vocal performance and to teach at the university level, while continuing to practice her love of vocal and theater performance. She will perform at Marion Civic Chorale's Spring Concerts where she will receive her scholarship award.
