Rhinelander High School choir student Diego Duarte is attending the Vocal Arts Festival this weekend at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's Peck School of the Arts.
To be selected, Diego had to pass through two levels of nominations from the UWM Voice Faculty, according to a School District of Rhinelander press release.
As part of the Vocal Arts Festival, 90 exceptional high school vocalists join UWM voice and choral faculty for two days of vocal masterclasses, lessons, honors choir rehearsals and performances and recitals focused on developing students' skills as solo and choral singers and performers, the release states.
All students selected for the festival:
Rehearse and perform with the UWM Honor Choir; the final performance will be in UWM's Helene Zelazo Center for the Arts (2419 E. Kenwood Blvd.) at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, 2020 (free admission).
Work on a prepared classical solo with a UWM voice faculty in a masterclass or mini-lesson; a few outstanding soloists will be selected to perform on the final concert; attend large and small group voice sessions focused on vocal health, anatomy, and performance skills.
Attend a performance of opera and musical theater scenes, choral music, and vocal solos given by UWM students and faculty.
"This is an excellent opportunity for talented high school singers to interact with, perform for, and join their voices with peers from around the region," the release states. "Participating students will have the chance to learn and grow as both soloists and choral artists."
