Evelyn “Eddy” Galstad is the 18th recipient of Luther's annual Alan R. and Sally J. Brudos Family Prize for Opera Performance. The prize carries a $6,000 cash award and was established and funded by a gift from Alan R. and Sally J. Brudos of Atherton, California. Alan Brudos, a 1955 Luther graduate and regent emeritus, is former chair of the Luther Board of Regents.
The purpose of the award is to assist talented students with the extraordinary expenses involved in the preparation and pursuit of careers in opera performance. Selection takes place during the student's junior year based on accomplishment in vocal performance and promise of an operatic career. The Brudos Prize is one of the largest awards given for excellence in music at Luther College.
Eddy is a student of Edwin Andereck and Nicholas Shaneyfelt.
