BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Birmingham-Southern College student Nat Gunter, a senior voice performance major from Tuscaloosa, was one of three Alabama winners of the New York Metropolitan Opera District Auditions.

Gunter was the youngest of 10 competitors, whose ages ranged from 22-32. He and the two other winners will now go on to the regional auditions in Memphis, Tenn., in March.

While at BSC, Gunter has performed in several theatrical productions including "Godspell," in which he played Jesus, and "Sweeney Todd," in which he played the lead character, Sweeney Todd. He also will be the only student performer in the upcoming one-act opera, "The Face on the Barroom Floor." In March, he will play the lead in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" at BSC.
