What a crazy fun summer! In June I traveled with my fellow Juilliard singers and instrumentalists to London, Paris, and Versailles touring the opera “Dido and Aeneas” by Purcell. We had a beautiful time singing in London’s Holland Park and then in the Palace of Versailles. What an honor to sing in the palace—truly something I will never forget!
Right after the tour at the end of June, I headed to upstate New York for The Chautauqua Institution! Chautauqua is a beautiful place to learn and grow and it has been so wonderful to be surrounded by such a supportive community. The biggest part of my summer at CHQ was singing the role of Tytania in Benjamin Britten’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. I also sang in various song recitals throughout the 7 weeks I have been here. What a beautiful summer it has been!
Now I’m off to visit my family in Nebraska, Iowa, and Florida before my second year at Juilliard! Woah!
