Cody Bradley places first, ties for second at singing competition
Cody Bradley, a junior music major from Maryville, was a top competitor at the Kansas City Chapter's National Association of Teachers of Singing contest Feb. 5 at Mid-America Nazarene University in Olathe, Kan.
Competing against junior and senior men from Kansas University, University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory, William Jewell College and other institutions throughout the Kansas City region, Bradley was awarded first place in the Upper College Men’s Division. He also tied for second place in the College Musical Theater Division.
He performed the aria “Se vuol ballare” from Mozart’s “Le Nozze di Figaro,” “Ich grolle nicht” by Schumann, “I’ve Heard It All Before” from the musical “Shenandoah,” and “Everybody Says Don’t” from Sondheim’s “Anyone Can Whistle.”
Bradley received cash prizes and an invitation to sing at the winner's recital in May.
At Northwest, Bradley is a member of Tower Choir, University Chorale, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and is a piano accompanist for the Celebration show choir. During the summer of 2011, he was a studio artist and accompanist at Opera in the Ozarks in Eureka Springs, Ark.
Bradley will perform as piano accompanist for Northwest’s production of “Oklahoma!” March 8-10, and he will perform a voice recital Saturday, April 14, at the First United Methodist Church in Maryville.
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.
