Three Students Awarded the Michael J. Ruetz Memorial Scholarship

Auditions for the 2020 Michael J. Ruetz Memorial Scholarship were held online in November after a delay from last semester. Students made video recordings of their auditions and they were shared to our distinguished judges, Dr. Aaron Humble who teaches voice and choirs at University of Minnesota Mankato and Dr. Jen Stephenson who teaches voice and directs opera at Baylor University. Students were ranked and offered feedback for their continued study. Among the eight applicants, the judges awarded three students with scholarships.

Emily Johnson, soprano- $1,500
Yimeng Xu, piano- $1,000
Joanna James, soprano- $1,000

Congratulations to our winners!
