The Overture Awards is a scholarship competition and academy that recognizes, encourages and rewards excellence in the arts among Tri-State students in grades 9-12. Its mission is to encourage arts education as an integral part of a student’s academic experience and to create an environment that encourages training in, and appreciation of, the arts.The Overture Academy is open to all Tri-state students at no cost. Master classes and workshops are taught by professional artists. Students may also attend seminars on audition techniques, submitting work for writers and visual artists, college admission and choosing a career path.The Overture Awards Competition is the Tri-state’s largest solo arts competition for high school students and offers scholarships in six artistic disciplines: Creative Writing, Dance, Instrumental Music, Theater, Visual Art, and Vocal Music. Students may win a $2,500 scholarship (one awarded in each discipline) or a $500 finalist scholarship (total of 18 awarded). Judges at all levels of the competition are drawn from the professional arts community.

In addition, I'll be teaching masterclasses at Ursuline Academy (my high school), St. Xavier High School, and at University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music (my college).
