Randolph-Macon Academy cadets Usran “Ozzie” Awa ‘20, Gillian Rydholm ‘18, and Sarah Ponn ‘19 were selected to participate in the 2018 District XIV Chorus Concert, which was held at Millbrook High School on February 10th. Rydholm sang Soprano 2 and Ponn sang Alto 1, while Awa participated as a Bass 1 singer.

In addition, on Thursday, February 8th, Rydholm and Ponn auditioned for All-Virginia Chorus, with Rydholm being selected as a second alternate. “Both did well,” said R-MA Chorus Director Michael DeMato, who was also the chairman of this year’s District Chorus event. “This year's field of singers was extremely competitive, as this year was the first year all high school students could audition, not only juniors and seniors, as it was in the past.”
