UBC's Wager Scholarship Student: Elena Gleason


Elana is a first-year graduate student in Vocal Performance at LSU School of Music, originally from Westchester, New York. She graduated from Bard College in 2009 with her Bachelor's degree in music, moved to New York City, and began her career as an opera singer.


She remained there until 2016 when career opportunities and the engagement to her fiance, Landon, brought her down south to New Orleans. Since then, she's been working professionally at many regional houses in the gulf coast area. She now lives in Baton Rouge with Landon and their dog, Fergus.
