CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - Campbellsville University School of Music senior vocal performance major Ian McGuffin of Bardstown, KY auditioned for the Master of Voice Performance program at Roosevelt University Chicago College of Performing Arts Conservatory and was recently notified of his acceptance into the program.

McGuffin is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Barry McGuffin, Bardstown, KY

He presented his junior recital this past spring semester and has been a major soloist with the CU Opera Workshop, CU Chorale, Concert Chorus, CU Orchestra and a regular participant in NATS and KMTA, and been a member of the Kentucky Opera Chorus. He was the Kentucky winner of the KMTA vocal division held at CU on November 1-3, 2014.

The vocal faculty at Roosevelt consists of current and previous stars of the Metropolitan Opera. Many of the conservatory's students have gone on to have illustrious careers as operatic singers in some of the most renowned opera houses of America and the world, according to Dr. David Hedrick, associate professor of music at CU, his voice teacher.

McGuffin has been informed he will be studying with the great baritone Richard Stilwell (Artist Faculty in Voice) who has had an illustrious career at the Met and still in demand to perform in opera companies, Hedrick said.

Stilwell played the role of Stephen Foster in the outdoor musical drama "The Stephen Foster Story" in Bardstown during the 1966 season while a graduate student at IU.
