MEET A BSU GRAD « BACK
A passion for performance put into action.
Katherine Tieben has a clear vision for her future: "Through performance, I want to inspire people to get involved in the arts. I want to touch people's lives."
Following graduation, she plans to move to the Twin Cities and begin auditioning. She also plans to develop a workshop that she could bring to elementary schools to inspire children to get involved in the performing arts.
Tieben is known for putting her passions into action. As a junior at BSU, she and a high school friend staged a benefit performance for Jordan High School, their alma mater. They raised $3,000 for the school's music and drama programs.
She's far from kicking back in her senior year. Teiben is president of the Bemidji Choir and student-run theatre organization, Theatre Unlimited. This is also the second year that she directed the masque for the Madrigal Dinners. She's actively involved in the Chamber Singers, as well.
"The leadership roles I've been put into have helped me realize what I really want to do. I couldn't imagine a better place to spend my undergraduate years."
