Are you in band, choir, or both?

I am in both.

What instrument(s) do you play?     What part do you sing?

I am a part of the percussion section in band. I sing Tenor, Alto, and Soprano in chorus.  I have a 2.9 octave range that permits me to sing all those parts.

To what bands/choirs do you belong at RVHS?   Outside of school? 

I belong to the jazz, concert, and marching bands. I belong to the show, select, and concert choirs.

How long have been playing in the band or singing in choir?

I  only joined band this year, but I’ve been in choir since I’ve been in 8th grade.

Do you participate in any other musical activities? 

I also participate in the musical, now for my third year now; community band; and I will be doing the talent show this year. I also sing at events such as the Student Council  coffee house and community pep rallies.

Are you in any other extra curricular activities?

I am in SPARK club and am president of the club. I have participated in soccer during grades 9-11, but not this year. I also am in robotics.

How are you planning to keep music in your life after you graduate high school?

I am attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania for Musical Theater and either  education or business in music. I absolutely adore music, and I want to continue showing the world how beautiful it is.

What is your favorite song?

I honestly had such a hard time choosing this, but I would have to say my favorite top songs would be The Ballad of Sweeney Todd and History of Wrong Guys.

What is your favorite band?

Panic! At The Disco would probably be my favorite band, but my favorite genre is Show Tunes/Broadway/Musical.

Who is your musical influence, and why?

My biggest musical influence would have to be either Mrs. McIntire or Alena Keller. They were the ones who really got me into performing and music, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am so incredibly thankful that they convinced me and have supported me through all I do.

What awards or recognition have you received in the high school? 

I  went to county and district choir the past two years. I am president of Choir. I have choreographed Show Choir and the Musical the past two years. I will play Babette in The Beauty and the Beast this year. I have performed solos in choir.
