WCA Student Receives National Recognition in Piano

In the life of a musician, spring is a time for concerts, recitals, and performances. One WCA student has

earned recognition on a national level in piano. Mitchell Moody won first place in the Free Will Baptist

Christian Training Service competition this past year. He and his family went to Grand Rapids, Michigan

last summer for the final leg of the process and came back victorious. This summer Mitchell will again

compete on the national level in Kansas City, Missouri, having recently won the state finals. Becoming a

competent instrumentalist takes years of practice and effort, so we are especially proud of Mitchell for

his determination towards excellence. Mitchell has been a student of Mrs. Norma Fincher’s since his

early elementary days and participates in the Strings classes at WCA as well as the music program in his

home church at Tippett’s Chapel in Clayton. At his recital last week, Mitchell played Rachmaninoff’s

difficult and challenging Prelude in G minor on the piano as well as Concerto No. 3 by Seitz on his viola.

Congratulations Mitchell for a job well done!
