Lily’s College Audition Visits

Hi all! It is officially that time I have anticipated throughout my entire high school journey- college audition season. At the beginning of my freshman year of high school, I was introduced to an art form that would soon become my greatest passion. After spending a year at San Francisco’s Ruth Asawa School of the Arts, I joined a voice program called the Bay Area Vocal Academy. By the time I could truly process what I was getting myself into, I had already fallen in love with the immense world of operatic singing. After almost four years of intense training, my goals are finally becoming attainable. For those who are unfamiliar with the college application process of classical musicians, it usually requires two “rounds” of auditions- the prescreening round, which is submitted along with my initial application, and the live audition round, which requires me visiting each school to audition live for a panel of judges. Eager to spread my wings and find my individuality as an artist, I applied to a total of eleven universities and music conservatories throughout the U.S. Having heard back from ten schools so far, I am beyond grateful and humbled to have been offered all ten live auditions. With this great honor, of course, comes a great price tag. Between the cost of flights to and from each individual school, hotels in each city and all of the costs that come with applications, lessons, audition attire, etc., I simply cannot afford to fund this life changing experience on my own. I have worked diligently through most of high school to be able to save up for this incredible cost, but my minimum wage jobs have unfortunately not been enough to provide all of the funding I need to truly gain the most from this experience. Your donation to this campaign is an investment in my future as a performer. With a little help from dear friends and family, I will be able to become a first generation college graduate and continue doing what I love throughout this next chapter in my life. Thank you to all of those that have supported and guided me along my journey so far, your help has shaped me into the person and the artist I am today, I am so grateful.
