Studio graduates Taylor Pearson and Brandon Alpert made a professional appearance in the new musical Norman’s Ark, currently running nightly at the Ford Amphitheater from May 27 to June 8. It’s a modern retelling of the Noah’s Ark story suitable for the entire family. We caught a sneak preview and thoroughly enjoyed the production. We highly recommend it! For information and tickets visit the Ford Amphitheater website. There’s a bit of background on the show on my last blog entry. Also, here’s an LA Times article about the show.

Congratulations to Daniella Samuel on being cast in the part of Wendy Darling in the Candelight Pavillion’s production of Peter Pan, running July 12 – August 17. For information and tickets, visit the venue website.

The Alpert Studio swept the vocal division of the 2008 John Child Walker Competition, held last weekend at Bridges Hall of Music, Claremont.

First place winner in lower division was Mercedes Machado, with Michael Sturgis taking second place. In the upper division, Sarah Jackson placed third, Kathryn McGuire took second and Cesar Quintero captured the first place prize. Congratulations to you all; you’ve made us proud once again!
