The Fine Arts Division of Central Methodist University (CMU) offers undergraduate opportunities in music, music education, music performance and theater. Students who wish to pursue careers in singing may want to consider enrolling at CMU, as one of its students received an award for her vocal talents.
Lacey Eaton, who earned a degree in vocal performance from CMU, won first place in the state in the Young Artists Vocal Competition at the Music Teachers National Association competition while she was a student at the school.
"Lacey sang a 30-minute recital program for the competition and she did a beautiful job," said Susan Quigley-Duggan, Eaton's voice teacher and assistant professor of music. "We are proud that she'll also be representing CMU as the state winner. I'm so glad her talent and hard work has been recognized."
Eaton was also selected to participate in a performance internship with the Asheville Lyric Opera in North Carolina. The summer opera program is designed to give career guidance and provide outreach performance experience as well as administrative experience. As an intern with the company, Eaton assisted with a performance tour of Western North Carolina, where she presented recitals and opera scenes for eight weeks.
