Christmas Cabaret – Thank You!
We wanted to share our thanks and appreciation to all of our Voices Unlimited students and audience members who made our Christmas Cabaret such a delightful event. What a fantastic way to ring in the holiday season!
Welcome, New Students
Our studio is growing! This month, we are thrilled to welcome the voices of Amelia Carson and Hillary Menke to the studio family.
As is our studio tradition, Voices Unlimited will be hosting an Opera/Musical Theatre Review!
For students, this is a fantastic opportunity to dive into new repertoire, and to more fully explore new characters and stories through performance. For audience members, it will be an enchanting evening of your most favorite pieces of music from both the opera and musical theatre stages.
Coming this May! More details will follow.
About the Students:
Hillary Menke- Hillary had the honor of working with Karolyn all through high school and into college. She studied vocal performance at Colorado State University, enjoying such roles as Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Lucy in Menotti’s The Telephone, and Lady Saphir in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience. After two and a half years of singing these grand, sweeping pieces of music, Hillary came to the realization that her true calling in life is to sing simple nursery rhymes and tell stories to little children. She has found a happy home working as one of the Kindergarten teachers at Mountain Sage Community School, a Waldorf inspired K-8 in Fort Collins. After four years, and a happy stroke of fate, Hillary found her way back to the music world, and finally reconnected with Karolyn. She can hardly begin to express her delight and gratitude to be making music with this fabulous studio once again.
A Thought on Music:
“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before” –Leonard Bernstein
