Carlson Places Second at West Central Regional MTNA Competition
Performing a 30-minute musical program in front of a three judge panel, Carlson competed against students from Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Colorado. Professor Susan Keith Gray served as pianist for the competition.
“Dana is a very talented and extremely motivated young lady,” said Professor Tracelyn Gesteland, who mentors Carlson in voice studies. “She is a major asset to our program and is completely deserving of this recognition. I am incredibly proud of her and the work she’s done.”
Carlson previously won the South Dakota MTNA competition qualifying her to the regional competition. Selected as an alternate, Carlson would perform in the national competition in Baltimore, Maryland, if the first place finisher is unable to attend.
