Students to compete for music scholarships


Follow The Republic:


Columbus' Janie Gordon has either sung or taught vocal music for more than 30 years. But when the Brown Music Scholarship competition begins Saturday, she will feel nerves maybe even more than her several students performing before top music school judges at First Christian Church.

"Oh my gosh, yes," Gordon said with a laugh. "I take every breath with them."
