South Prairie High School student demonstrates local talent

The Minot region is blessed with artists of all sorts – visual artists, performing artists and many others. Regular readers of Minot Daily News have been able to meet some of these outstanding creative people in reguarly occurring profiles and features about artists and handcrafters.

Of particular delight is introducing young people of talent – local children and teens with immense talent who are clearly going places and will represent our community, wherever their careers take them, for many years ahead.

Kamryn Morrison is one such high school student. The South Prairie High School student was one of more than 18,000 performers worldwide who auditioned to be a part of the 2019 High School Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall. Only 150 are selected.

Now, Kamryn is set to head off for no less a famed venue then Carnegie Hall.

As MDN’s own Shyanne Belzer wrote this week in the paper, “Music has been a part of Kamryn Morrison’s life for as long as she can remember. She has performed with the Western Plains Children’s Choir for over seven years, has performed at many festivals and concerts, and was even a contestant on the recent PBS talent search ‘Celebration of Music’ with her school’s show choir, Royal Rhapsody.

“Morrison performs a wide range of music, but loves performing choral music. She also really enjoys musical theater and performed with MSU’s summer theater over the past year. She has even added original music to her repertoire of musical talents.”

It takes a supportive community to help produce such talented young artists. It takes school and civic institutions to produce opportunity and guidance and it takes audiences to inspire.

Our educational institutions, cultural organizations and welcoming audiences provide all of those things.

In this case, Morrison provides the talent, the drive, the vision.

MDN wishes Morrison the very best of luck – or rather, break a leg.

Minot is behind you. We know you will do us proud.
