Sweet song of success

A Mizzou music graduate student won a national singing award earlier this week at the Music Teachers National Association competition in Albuquerque. Molly Clodius performed a grueling 25-minute program that included nine songs in four languages to win the 2010 Young Artist Voice competition. Clodius, a soprano, was mentored by her voice coach Ann Harrell, associate professor of music.

With her win, Clodius cemented a decade-long tradition for MU music students. She is one of four Mizzou students to win the prize over the past 10 years. Two other students of Harrell won the competition: Neal Boyd in 2000 and Emily Bennett in 2008. Kori Bickel won the title in 2002, with coaching from Jo Ella Todd, professor of music.
