Semester 1

Semester 1

It’s already the end of my first semester here at Juilliard! It definitely flew by, but they’ve kept me very busy the whole time. This past Tuesday was the First Year Presentation, and all of the first year singers finally got to perform what we’ve been working on since September. It was a fantastic evening! A lot of singers had their family in town to see it, and my mother made the trek from NC.

My mother and I made our way over to Rockefeller Center to see the tree!

Thursday was the much-anticipated masterclass with Joyce DiDonato. Joyce has been one of my idols since I first started pursuing voice. She is full of so much wisdom, not to mention her killer voice. If you are able to catch it on YouTube, I’m the first question in the Q&A! J

This semester has been absolutely wonderful. I’ve had a bunch of ups and downs but I know I definitely wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I’ve grown tremendously as an artist in the last few months, and I can’t wait to see what the next semester holds.

And I’ll leave you with a few of this semester’s highlights:

1.      Move-in day!

2.    Meeting Kelli O’Hara <3

3.       The Juilliard Circle Line Cruise

4.      Lots of shows!

5.      And, of course, Christmas time in the city!

Now time for a break!

Be back soon,

Shelby
