New Ulm woman qualifies for Minnesota sings 31 Aug 15

A performance of a song from the musical “Phantom of the Opera” is sending a New Ulm woman to the Minnesota Sings competition in St. Paul in September. Leah Lumney performed “Wish You Were Somehow Here Again” and her rendition won her first place in the qualifying event held at the State Street Theater Saturday night. Cait Eisner was the runner-up. Lumney will represent New Ulm in the Minnesota Sings competition September 27 and will have a chance for the grand prize of $2,500. The contest was judged by Miles and Cathy Wurster.
