WA Student Finalist In National Vocal Competition

Congratulations to sophomore, Rachel Castillo for placing fifth in the 2019 National Vocal Competition! The New York City Lyric Opera Company sponsors this talent search by holding live auditions in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, and Miami. In addition, they accepted recorded auditions from all over the country for Division I & II. The competition always gathers talented students. However, this year, the company received a record number of applicants. As a result, they reported the talent level was very high.

The New York City Lyric Opera invited all finalists to sing at the National Finalists’ Concert on Sunday, April 28. Rachel will return to New York City this weekend to perform at the National Opera Center.

Bravo, Rachel!
