October Art Student of the Month stars in ‘Spamalot’ – Knox County VillageSoup


ROCKPORT – Congratulations to Audrey Leavitt, chosen as Camden Hills Regional High School Visual and Performing Arts Student of the Month for October. In Camden Hills, Audrey is a musical leader and team player. Her dedication and discipline inside the classroom and during extracurricular activities is exemplary. Audrey is an inspired musician.

Over the years, music has played an important role in Audrey’s life. She has developed skills by playing several instruments, such as flute, horn and piano, but her main interests lie in vocal performance.

His musical journey began in third grade when asked to sing the national anthem at a community meeting at his old school in St. George. When Audrey had a positive response from this experience, she decided to continue her musical adventure.
in high school. She has had many educators and mentors who have helped her get to where she is today, including Richard Walton, Susan Iltis, Beverly Pacheco, Kristin O’Neal, Nancy Rowe, and Kim Murphy.

While in high school, Audrey participated in many musical events. Throughout her high school career, she performed the national anthem at several sporting events, such as football and basketball games. In the first year, she participated in the choir, harmony orchestra and musical of the school “Anything Goes”. By sophomore she had discovered that her musical interests lay more in the vocal performance aspect of the performing arts. She then became a member of Chamber Singers, the a cappella girl group Fortissima, and starred in the musical “Mary Poppins” where she played the role of the bird woman. The junior year was when Audrey really started to grow both musically and personally. She made it a personal goal to serve as a musical leader and help others musically. She sang again in Chamber Singers and was part of the spring musical “The Theory of Relativity”. This year, Audrey continues her musical journey by performing in Chamber Singers, co-directing Fortissima and directing the fall musical “Monty Python’s Spamalot School Edition”.

In addition, Audrey also participated in District 3 and All State choirs throughout high school. She began her experience in District 3 in grade six and continued this journey through high school. Once in high school, she was introduced to the All State Festivals and has been engaged in the choir since second year.

After high school, Audrey plans to go to college to become an elementary school teacher with a major in music. She continues to sing and perform in local musicals as opportunities arise. His hope for the future is to encourage young people to engage in musical activities.

One thought she would like to share with younger peers is, “I often say that the musical wing is where I can be myself. Although I know I can be myself anywhere in the school, it is the place where I feel most comfortable and happy. Many would say I’m a shy person, but when I start singing I ‘come out of my shell’ and become a whole new person. The music program here at CHRHS is truly amazing and it’s something that is easy to take for granted.

Members of the community are invited to come see Audrey and her peers in the fall production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot School Edition” on November 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:00 p.m. and November 10 at 6:00 p.m. For more information, email StromTickets @ gmail .com or order your tickets online at Stromtix.com.
