A photo or two
This week, we highlight two photos of particularly noteworthy events involving students and staff.
Achievement in music—Three Birmingham-Southern student musicians have been selected as winners of the college's eighth annual Whittington Music Competition and will appear as soloists in a Feb. 17 concert with the Red Mountain Chamber Orchestra. The concert will begin at 3 p.m. in the Hill Recital Hall on campus. The orchestra, which will be directed by 1988 BSC alumnus Mark Ridings, will accompany (from left) Anna Underwood, a junior music major and pianist from Homewood; Sirena Wang, a senior music major and pianist from Huntsville; and Shelby Bowling, a junior vocal performance major from Mobile. The highly competitive Whittington Music Competition is named for Frances and Dorsey Whittington, who were leaders of the Birmingham Conservatory of Music, which later became the Music Department at Birmingham-Southern.
BSC goes red—Several participants of Birmingham-Southern's Scale Back Alabama program and other members of the campus community recently participated in a life-saving awareness movement. National Wear Red Day, celebrated Feb. 1, was a day when Americans nationwide took women's health to heart by wearing red to show their support and to issue a wake-up call for women about heart disease. National Wear Red Day promotes the Red Dress symbol as part of its health campaign which carries this message: “Heart disease doesn't care what you wear—it's the #1 killer of women.”
