SoHi and Messiah College grad Brandon Newbould will perform Saturday night at Christ Lutheran in Soldotna.
While growing up in Soldotna may not have offered equal opportunities to become a world performer as other places, Newbould feels he was well prepared to pursue his passion for music, "Maria Allison is as fine an accompanist as you'll find anywhere, and she has been gracious enough to accompany me for the recital. Yes, it's different here and while it may not offer the same opportunity for performance and the level of competition as other places, there really is tremendous talent in our community and I'm grateful for the educational programs here, the preparation of teachers like Dave Schmidt and others definitely prepared me to continue into higher musical education," said Newbould.
