Campbellsville University hosted both competitions. On Nov. 11, Mason Pack, a junior music major from Louisa, won the Bluegrass Young Artist Music Theater competition of the Kentucky Music Teachers Association. Alura Schaum, a sophomore history major from Cynthiana, and Eli Campbell, a sophomore vocal performance major from Ashland, earned Honorable Mentions in the Bluegrass Young Artist Classical Competition.  

On Nov. 17 and 18, MSU singers competed against nearly 200 singers from around the state in the Kentucky auditions of the National Association of Teachers of Singing. Ashley Vela, a freshman music major from Lexington, won the Freshman Women Classical division. Schaum won in Sophomore Women Classical and Sophomore Women Music Theatre divisions. The students will compete at the Mid-South Regional auditions at Tennessee State University in March.  

“It is wonderful to see how our students can stack up against the powerhouse schools throughout the state of Kentucky,” said Dr. Roma Prindle, professor of voice at MSU.
