Ava often leads the singing at Mass in the Liturgical Singers. She is a member of the Tri-M Music Honor Society. She started with Peggy when she was at Cooper Middle School. Peggy immediately determined that she was a high soprano, not an alto!
This spring she performed the role of Miss Dorothy in Paul VI’s production of Thoroughly Modern Millie. She studied dance for many years, before switching to musical theater. She performed in major roles in Lopez Studios’ shows. She played Madame in Beauty and the Beast and Princess Fiona in Shrek.
Ava will attend George Mason University this fall. She plans on majoring in Creative Writing and perhaps minoring in Computer Game Design. She plans to continue choral singing.
Ava is a senior at Paul VI High School, where she sings in the Chamber Choir.
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.
