K-State music student wins area singing competition

Submitted by Bryan Pinkall

Three K-State students competed in the Kansas City Metropolitan scholarship auditions of the National Association of Teachers of Singing on Feb. 6 at Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe.

More than 100 students from around the Kansas City metropolitan area competed in the competition, representing many local universities and colleges in Kansas and Missouri. K-State was represented by Cooper McGuire, Corbin Eakes and Garrett Prall, students of Bryan Pinkall in the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance.

McGuire, freshman in music education, came away with the highest honors of the competition. He was the only singer to win two divisions: Lower College Men and the extremely competitive College Music Theatre division.

"Any opportunity to perform is a great learning experience," said Pinkall. "I am so proud of our students deciding to represent K-State, and to take advantage of such a great performing opportunity."
