USD music student is Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition finalist

VERMILLION, S.D. -- University of South Dakota student Brody Krogman, of Sioux Falls, S.D., is a finalist in the Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition.

Krogman, a freshman music major and a student of Brandon Hendrickson, D.M.A., assistant professor of Voice/Opera at USD, was required to send in an audition CD containing two songs of contrasting style. The competition is open to all students that are seniors in high school and freshmen in college.

“I feel honored to be competing against nine other peers that have achieved excellence in singing,” Krogman said. “Since attending the University of South Dakota, I have had many successes and wonderful opportunities. The music faculty at USD is incomparable and I would encourage any talented young musicians to be part of the USD College of Fine Arts.”

In just his first year at USD, Krogman was the bass soloist for a performance of Haydn’s “Creation,” auditioned and was selected to the bass roster of the South Dakota Chorale and, just recently, he won first place at the district level of the National Association of Teachers of Singing Competition. As a finalist in the Glenn Miller Scholarship Competition, Krogman will compete against nine additional students during the competition’s first night, June 14. Out of this competition three vocalists and three instrumentalists will be chosen for scholarship awards. First place in each category will receive $4,500; second place - $2,000 and third place will receive $1,000.
