Birmingham-Southern student qualifies for regional music competition

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.— Birmingham-Southern College student Dan Bostick of Vestavia Hills recently won top honors at a statewide music competition sponsored by the Alabama chapter of the Music Teachers National Association.

Bostick, a junior music major, won the preliminary competition in organ at the MTNA Collegiate Artist Competition in Montgomery. Students competing in organ were required to play a program as long as most undergraduate recitals or concerts.

“It's been a long time since I've had a student who played well enough to enter and who was disciplined enough to learn all of the required repertory,” said Dr. James Cook, the BSC professor of music who mentors Bostick. “I expect Dan to be an excellent representative for both the college and the state as he moves on to the next level.”

The competitions are sponsored annually by the MTNA, a nonprofit organization representing music teachers in studios, music schools, public schools, and institutions of higher education.

Bostick, who is the son of Alan and Sherry Bostick, will compete at the MTNA's regional competition at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg in January.
