MARYVILLE, Mo. - Cody Bradley, a sophomore music major at Northwest Missouri State University, was the top competitor in two categories at the Kansas City Chapter's National Association of Teachers of Singing contest Feb. 6.

Competing against students from Kansas University, the University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Central Missouri, among other regional schools, Bradley won first place in the Lower College Men's Classical Division. He also earned second place in the Collegiate Division for Musical Theater. 

For the classical division, Cody sang songs by Richard Strauss and Hector Berlioz. In the musical theater division, Bradley sang "Promises, Promises" from the award-winning musical of the same name and "It's Hard to Speak My Heart" from the musical "Parade."   

Bradley received cash prizes and an invitation to sing at the winner's recital in May. In addition, Bradley showcased his talents by accompanying five other vocalists from Northwest. 

At Northwest, Bradley is a member of Tower Choir, University Chorale, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and he is a piano accompanist for the Celebration show choir.

Bradley began studying piano with Sandi Anderson in 2000 and has studied voice with Dr. Sheila Phillips, assistant professor of music at Northwest, since the fall of 2007. A graduate of Maryville High School, Bradley earned numerous "1" ratings for voice in contests at the district and state levels.
