Pearson, a second-year graduate student from Gretna, Nebraska, competed in the Advanced Women’s Classical division, and Warner, a senior from Council Bluffs, Iowa, competed in the Upper College Men’s Musical Theatre division. They are both students of Tracelyn Gesteland, D.M.A., associate professor of voice/opera and holder of the Walter A. and Lucy Yoshioka Buhler Endowed Chair.

“Kaitlin and Eldon performed beautifully and were outstanding representatives of USD on the national stage,” Gesteland said. “I am incredibly proud of both of them.”
