What a wonderful afternoon! We had over thirty performances at our 15th annual showcase. There was a lot of strong, up-and-coming talent on display for the audience to enjoy.

Honor students were announced during the awards ceremony. Each of these students received a trophy today, and their names have already been added to perpetual plaques on display in the studio.

She did it! Estelle Lee wrapped up all her requirements for AIM V in her lesson this week. Great work and just in time to receive a trophy at the studio's annual showcase on May 14th! So proud of this little lady. She really tries to be the best she can be...and it shows. Congratulations Estelle!

Currently on Broadway in the title role of "Amélie", Bel Canto alum Phillipa Soo took a break from performing to visit The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 27. During the interview, Pippa spontaneously broke into a quick clip of Aretha Franklin's "Think", one of her all-time favorite songs. Amazing voice, great technique, understands the adjustments needed for musical style. She learned her lessons well. See what you "think"! http://www.playbill.com/article/watch-phillipa-soo-sing-aretha-franklins-think-on-late-night
