Two USD Vocal Performance Students Reach National Competition Final
Vocal performance major Bailey Quade of Rapid City, South Dakota, and vocal performance and music education major Mikayla Trenhaile of Yankton, South Dakota, were selected based on their audition recordings and personal statements submitted as part of their applications. Only 10 students made the final competition. Both are rising sophomores.
"I am incredibly proud of both Bailey and Mikayla for being selected as two of the ten national finalists this year. That is quite an exceptional achievement, and the fact that we had two finalists speaks to the depth of talent at USD,” said Tracelyn Gesteland, USD voice professor.
The competition honors the life and career of Glenn Miller, a dance band musician from Clarinda, Iowa. In honoring Miller, the scholarship seeks to assist promising young talents in any field of applied music who may be musical leaders of tomorrow.
