Sophia is a sophomore at George C. Marshall High School, where she sings in the Marshall Camerata, the advanced treble choir. Singing is very important to Sophia, and she has taken private lessons since eighth grade. She took many lessons in the McNulty Studio backyard during covid and performed her first recitals outside.

She was selected to perform “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” at a Marshall High School choral concert this fall. She has also sung in many student recitals and workshops.

Sophia not only loves to sing, but she also enjoys playing the guitar, loves the Beatles, is in a Greek folk dance troupe, and loves drawing portraits. She also enjoys being a member of the Marshall High School cross country and track teams.

The Musical Theatre Competition sponsored by the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association was held Sunday, Nov. 6, at the Woman's Club of Arlington.

Peggy with Caden Peng, eighth grader at Cooper Intermediate School.

Peggy’s personal joy in singing and her commitment to teaching have stimulated her students to participate in musical activities in their communities. Several current students are participating in church and school choirs, and also are performing roles in school and community theater. Peggy’s former students maintain contact with her and share their delight in singing as they continue to study and perform. 

Peggy herself continues to study and give performances. She has sought out private instruction for herself. She has 30 years of voice study under the direction of well-known musicians and teachers, including Marianna Busching, Gillian Cookson, Todd Duncan, George Gibson, Dr. James McDonald, Martha Randall, Jennie Tourel, and Jane White. 

Peggy is an active participant in voice-related professional conferences and meetings in the United States.
