“What an incredible experience it was to sing with the Berkshire Choir,” said Elizabeth Wensmann. “Singing with a wide range of ages and ability level gave me an insight into how aging affects the vocal chords. I had an amazing time and will cherish the memories forever.”

A vocal music education major, Wensmann was accepted into the program based on her audition recording of three solo pieces and received a full scholarship including tuition, room and board. The program included five hours of choral rehearsals each day and professional private voice lessons culminating in the performance of a major choral orchestral work.

“Elizabeth is a wonderful singer with the potential to be an outstanding music educator. This program was the perfect vehicle for her to gain valuable experience as a soloist, choral singer, and future teacher,” said Tracelyn Gesteland, associate professor of voice at USD.
