Hal Leonard Vocal Competition

Life has been really crazy recently, hasn’t it? Personally, I’ve been keeping busy with my music. I submitted to the Hal Leonard vocal competition, a last-minute project that I had a ton of fun working on! My wonderful voice teacher Ms. M helped me prepare and was really flexible in setting up extra lessons. I submitted to two categories – Musical Theatre and Art Songs.

I recently received the results of the competition, and it turns out that in the Musical Theatre category I was a semifinalist, and in the art songs category I was a finalist! I was really excited about this. For the musical theatre category I had sung Reflection (from Mulan) and Born To Entertain (from Ruthless), and for the art songs I sang Ho! Mr. Piper and Oh, Shenendoah. Here are the recordings!

Can you believe we’ve already arrived in December?! Let me take a second to tell you about a recent performance of mine. Just a couple weeks ago I had my final orchestra concert for this semester! We prepared three pieces – the recordings are below.

This concert was particularly special, as we were joined by the incredible director of my school, Ms. Hawthorne! She changed her flight into Atlanta so that she could attend. I was so happy and appreciative that she came. My wonderful friend and teacher, Mme. Maryse, also attended as well as some family friends. Thank you to everyone who came – I really appreciate your support. 😊
