It takes the efforts and talents of many people to make this experience possible. We want to acknowledge the work of our professional collaborative pianists in this process: John Bennett, Yulia Kalashnikova, Adam McDonald, and Bryan Stanley; and to Stacie Haneline for her assistance as Collaborative Piano Coordinator. Thanks to Julianne Furey and Jen Kalvoda for facilitating reservations of the Recital Hall for recording.

Leah Kolar, our new Adjunct Instructor of Voice, served as Auditions Coordinator for Nebraska NATS. In addition to serving as Auditions Coordinator, fourteen of her private studio high school students received awards in their categories. Congratulations!
