Is this beautiful or what?
Philip Celeste did it! He completed all of his piano requirements for AIM II in his last lesson. We’ve had to really work at recognizing intervals, but he got every one this time. I really put him through his paces too! We’ve been knocking out other Level III requirements for a while. Way to go […]
I’m still marveling at what I heard last Saturday night. Kaitlin Tenbrunsel was positively electric!! She brought down the house with every reprise of Rusty’s big number “Let’s Hear It for the Boy” in Footloose. I don’t think she could have sung anything better. The role is unbelievably high, but still requires a solid belt. […]
Brin Ferges was recently cast as Oaken in Frozen by Big Deal Productions! Her solo number will open the second act. (The song isn’t in the movie, just the stage show.) Congratulations Brin!
Please join me in congratulating Miss Kaitlin Tenbrunsel on her first professional contract! Kaitlin was hired as part of the ensemble for the Children of Eden production at the Arcadia Theatre in St. Charles next summer. She came in a very close second for the role of Yonah, but was not cast in the role because […]
Brin Ferges continues to give confident performances whether auditioning for a musical theatre production or singing for an audience. Check out her rendition of “Tomorrow” from Annie at this year’s Roslyn Road Variety Show: https://youtu.be/U1gJXdhkCg8. Great job for someone who just turned nine.
This young lady has really been getting after it! Her voice is getting stronger every time she comes for a voice lesson. Julia Baumer was just cast as Dina in Schoolhouse Rock Jr. The production will be put on by It’s Showtime Theatre this April. Way to go, Julia!
Congratulations to Peyton Ball! She has successfully completed all of her AIM IV piano requirements, even dictation! (Turns out, it’s easier than she thought it might be.) Good work, Peyton.
Footloose cast just posted! Kaitlin Tenbrunsel landed Rusty, Kailey Jeffs will be Vi Moore, Grace Guthrie will play Lulu Warnicker, Austin Molinaro to portray Lyle, and Jalen Fertig as Bickle! Dance core will include Emma Proctor. Jess Shimp, Rachel Nazha, Alison Schnura, and Anna McCoy will all be part of the adult ensemble. Sophie Farmer […]
The last few weeks have been crazy…so many of my students and alums in shows and/or auditioning for more chances to perform! Congrats to Lorelei Lynott – she made the cast of the Schaumburg on Stage production of Newsies. Emma Proctor was in The Diary of Anne Frank, mainstage at BHS. Jessica Shimp was Prudie […]
Brin Ferges was in her element when she performed as Fancy Frieda in Roslyn Road’s 5th grade play, Rockin’ Roslyn’s Wacky Road. The play was written by students. She played the part of a very confident, bling-loving shop owner. Brin even threw some improv to enhance her character! What a fun experience for her.
Really proud of Pierce Orlando. He passed all of his AIM Level IC keyboard requirements this week! We’ve already completed a bunch for Level II as well. Way to go Pierce.
Congratulations to Miss Emi Celeste! She passed all of her AIM II keyboard requirements in last week’s lesson. One of her pieces was Level IV – especially impressive!
Showcase videos are up! There are some seriously good student performances that you should check out: www.youtube.com/belcantostudios1. We weren’t able to get good recordings of everyone. Some of these are flat out inspiring. There’s musical theatre, pop, jazz/swing/blues, classical, country pop… something for everybody!
