Voice student places second at Miami singing competition

Congratulations to Christina Solazzo who recently took 2nd place in the high school division at the Miami regional Classical Singer competition.
A private voice student at the Patel Conservatory, Solazzo also recently showed off her soprano vocals for the producers of America’s Got Talent. A junior at Palm Harbor University High School, she’s been accepted to study at the Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan this summer, an intense six week vocal training program.
“This is a huge honor as it’s very difficult to be accepted to that program,” said Gregory Ruffer, music chair and Solazzo’s voice instructor.
“She’s really excited about it,” said Adele Solazzo, Christina’s mother. “During the school year, with all her other obligations, she only makes it over to Patel once a week. This will be daily instruction, all day.” 
At the recent Classical Singer competition held at the University of Miami, Solazzo performed two arias. She'll continue to the semi-finals in Chicago this May. The competition awards more than $2.1 million in college scholarships.
“There’ll be 100 or more colleges present, so it will be good chance to talk to them and see what they have to offer,” said Adele.
An International Baccalaureate student, Solazzo performs with her school’s musical theater department and 'a cappella' group.

She also organizes fundraisers for education in Pakistan and volunteers for Hospice.
What doesn’t this girl do?
We wish her the best at the semi-finals in May!
