After two years as visiting assistant professor of voice, the Rudi E. Scheidt School
of Music has appointed Mary Wilson, soprano, assistant professor of voice. Wilson is acknowledged as one of today's most exciting young artists. Cultivating
a wide-ranging career singing chamber music, oratorio and operatic repertoire, her
“bright soprano seems to know no terrors, wrapping itself seductively around every
phrase.” (Dallas Morning News)
