Brava Olivia!

Hello dear Museworthy friends. I do believe that this is going to be the best “Music Monday” post ever!! 🙂

Last Friday, the children of PS 166 on New York’s upper west side put on a marvelous vocal concert at the school. Under the instruction of their dedicated voice teacher Katie Stults, PS 166ers showed off their hard work and practice to the delight of parents and family. The After School Enrichment Clubs winter vocal program included the fantastic choir which opened the show, and then featured the individual private voice students who each performed a song of their choosing. My eight year-old niece Olivia was one of those brave solo performers, and she had her family, including grandma and Aunt Claudia, in the audience cheering her on.

My brother Chris (that’s Olivia’s dad) filmed this video of her performance. Her song is “Castle on a Cloud” from Les Misérables, and can I just say how impressed I am with her poise, her stage presence, and her excellent pitch! Good girl Olivia 🙂

The students of the choir:

    Olivia is fantastic! I mean it. Her wonderfully controlled intonation (which is extremely accurate) and her flawless rhythm and timing are signs she is super talented. The key (a minor) is low for her – c minor would have been much better. Get her to Juilliard asap!!!
