ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University student Alisha Luymes will have her senior recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 17, in the Johnson Fine Arts Center’s Berggren Recital Hall.
Luymes grew up in Wessington Springs, graduating from Wessington Springs High School in 2009. She is the daughter of Kirk and Lynda Luymes of Wessington Springs.
Luymes, whose vocal classification is mezzo-soprano, is majoring in music education. She studied with Northern’s Michael Skyles.
Why did she choose to attend NSU?
“I toured many colleges, and Northern just felt most like home to me,” Luymes said. “Its close-knit campus has allowed me to have a very personal and enjoyable experience.”
Her most memorable experience at Northern was getting the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C., with the NSU Marching Wolves to participate in the Presidential Inaugural Parade.
“It was quite an honor and is an experience I will never forget,” she said.
Luymes will graduate in December. She hopes to attend graduate school for music therapy and eventually start her own music therapy business.
