​ ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University student Ben Villa will have his senior recital at 3 p.m. Nov. 18 in Johnson Fine Arts Center’s Berggren Recital Hall.


Villa grew up in Rapid City, graduating from Rapid City Central High School in 2008. Villa, who is majoring in music and musical theater, is the son of Tim and Kim Villa of Rapid City.


Villa, a tenor, said he chose to attend Northern because of Dr. Timothy Woods and the music department. He studied with Woods for two years and  Michael Skyles for 2 ½ years.
