NDSU music students receive recognition

November 23, 2015
Briana Moynihan and Ruben Flores, both undergraduate students in the Challey School of Music, recently received recognition for a performance and a paper respectively.

Briana Moynihan received one of two Young Artist Encouragement Awards in November at the North Dakota District Auditions of the Metropolitan Opera National Council – Upper Midwest Region. There were 14 contestants participating, ranging in age from 22-30. As described by Louise Pinkerton, chair of the auditions, Encouragement Awards are given to young contestants who show exceptional promise in opera and whose vocal technique is "on the right track."

Moynihan is a senior, pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and is a NDSU Presser Scholar recipient. She is from Woodbury, Minn.

Ruben Flores paper entitled “The Musical Consumption of Latino/as in the Red River Valley” has been selected for presentation at the 34th Great Lakes Regional Conference of The College Music Society, which will be held at Indiana University - South Bend, April 2016.

Flores is a junior pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Music with a double major in International Relations.  He is from East Grand Forks, Minn., and an NDSU McNair Scholar.

A consortium of college, conservatory, university, and independent musicians and scholars interested in all disciplines of music, the Society provides leadership and serves as an agent of change by addressing concerns facing music in higher education.
