Caleb's recent win affords him the opportunity to perform with Michael Feinstein.
Caleb Freeman (Grand Prize), Leah Huber (Second Place), and Adam Born (Third Place) swept the winners' circle in the first Songbook South High School Vocal Competition in February 2017. Seven high school students participated in a two day vocal intensive with clinicians, Naz Edwards (Broadway star/voice over artist) and Daryl Kojak (Award-winning NYC Jazz pianist). The contestants perfected their vocal craft, working on song arrangements, vocal techique, and lyric interpretation. All three students will receive scholarships to apply and attend (if accepted) the Songbook Academy hosted by Michael Feinstein in 2017.
