This past weekend, Emily competed in the Wisconsin District of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She was one of four chosen to move on to the Upper-Midwest regionals, which will take place February 19, 2017 in St. Paul, Minnesota. She was also honored to win the 2016 People’s Choice Award and the 2016 Bel Canto Award. The Bel Canto award consists of a contract to perform as a guest soloist on Bel Canto Chorus’s 2017-18 season.
Emily would like to thank Patricia Crump, Kathy Pyeatt, Tanya Kruse Ruck, Colleen Brooks, Helen Ceci and all of the other volunteers for their hard work, their time and their passion for supporting young people in the arts.
