What would you like to say to your performing arts teachers/directors?

Thank you Mr. Sypien for caring so much about your students and keeping us on track. Also thank you for taking us on amazing trips, creating a fun environment to work in, and pushing us to work hard in not only singing but also in life. I learned many things from you that I am excited to keep in my life and teach others. I will always keep music in my life because of you!

What would you like to say to your parents?

Thank you Mom, Nana, and Pappy for always supporting me and always coming to my concerts. It is because of you that I fell in love with singing and I want to continue in any way that I can. 

What would you like to say to your performing arts peers, either specifically or as a whole?

Thank you Bailey, Dori, Ally, and my Women’s Ensemble class this year for making the Winter Concert one I will never forget. I have learned so much from all of you and I will miss not being able to sing together one last time. 

Advice for underclassmen?

Always keep music in your life, you never know how it can change you. I also encourage you to talk to as many people as you can in your classes because you can make some incredible friends. Have fun but also work hard!
