There have been many exciting developments in the Alpert Studio family recently. First of all, let us all congratulate several Studio students for their notable accomplishments.
Michael Sturgis and Cesar Quintero were selected as semi-finalists in the SCVA Vocal Solo Competition and advanced to the next round which will be held this Saturday. Good luck to you both! Cesar was also a semi-finalist in the non-classical division of the LA Music Center Spotlight Awards. Way to go Cesar!
Kathryn McGuire will be spending most of her summer in Graz Austria after being accepted to the prestigious American Institute of Musical Studies.
Also several studio students are on stage this month, please support them by attending their performances:
Kari Kennedy is in the Grove’s production of Pochantas and Mackenzie Orr stars as Mary in the City of Rancho Cucamonga’s Community Theater production of The Secret Garden. I’m really proud of all of you and all the hard work you’ve done.
Finally: news of this Summer’s musical production. I’m thrilled to be music director of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, in conjunction with Broadway Experience and the Los Osos High School Theater Department. Performances are slated for July.
