USD Voice Professor Gesteland Presents at International Conference
“It was a tremendous honor to represent USD, South Dakota, and the United States at this prestigious conference,” said Gesteland.
Gesteland’s lecture-recital entitled, "Verklaertes Jahr: The Lieder of Joseph Marx,” was given in collaboration with pianist Amanda Johnston from the University of Mississippi.
“Our presentation was very well received, and I learned so many new things from my colleagues around the world,” said Gesteland. “I am incredibly inspired to share this wealth of information with my students this year."

This year's theme was "Tradition and Science in Harmony," and the conference included delegates from 36 nations. Attendees include voice teachers, voice scientists, professional singers and collaborative pianists.
