Birmingham-Southern freshman wins top prize at local collegiate music competition
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College student Rose Reddick, a freshman music major originally from Memphis, Tenn., and now a resident of Trussville, won the top prize at the Alabama Music Teachers Association collegiate solo competition held recently.
