Six Morningside College students were selected to perform at an honors recital after the 11th annual student adjudications sponsored by the Lewis and Clark Chapter of the National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).

Six of the singers were selected to perform on the honors recital at the conclusion of the day’s events. Nate Hettinger and Blair Remmers performed in the freshman/sophomore men division; Nick Anderson performed in the junior/senior men division; Nolley Vereen performed in the musical theatre non-traditional division; Autumn Knipp performed in the musical theatre upper undergraduates divisions; and Katie Rasmussen performed in both the junior/senior women and the musical theatre upper undergraduates division.
Students were accompanied by Jayne Koch, staff accompanist, Dr. James March, professor of music and Dr. Kathryn March, adjunct piano teacher.
